Add pizzazz to a classic salad by replacing white potatoes with sweet potatoes. Delicious!
It’s time to give potato salad a makeover. Add a little color to your table with this spiced-up version featuring sweet potatoes. Nestled on the buffet between the macaroni salad and the coleslaw, this mouthwatering dish is guaranteed to be a real showstopper.
In addition to packing a colorful punch, sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamins A and C. To balance the sweetness of the potatoes, I like to add plenty of mildly spiced poblano peppers. A fresh lime dressing adds a little zip and cilantro ties the Latin flavors together. Dress the potatoes while they're still warm. That way, they’ll soak up the liquid and take on tons of flavor. Add a little lime juice and cilantro just before serving to perk up the salad and add some freshness.
About the size of small green bell peppers, poblanos are uniquely flavored Mexican peppers with a low heat level. They rate around 1,000 on the Scoville scale (or about one-third as hot as a jalapeño). They’re usually easy to find in grocery stores, although sometimes they’re labeled as pastille peppers.
