Sweet Potato Salad with Tarragon Dressing


Much of the time sweet potato recipes are more on the sweet side, so I thought I’d come up with one that was tangy and savory instead. This Sweet Potato Salad with Tarragon Dressing is a wonderful replacement for traditional, creamy potato salad.

This is my new favorite side to serve with roasted chicken and hot-off-the-grill steaks! It keeps well in the fridge for several days so it’s also great for your weekly packed meals. Enjoy!
