Believe it or not, one does not need mayonnaise to make potato salad. Maybe you already knew this, maybe it's a little obvious. But I never really considered the idea until making this dijon sweet potato salad recipe and now it's my favorite way to make potato salad.
We developed this recipe for Edible Indy's latest issue, with picnics and summer adventuring in mind. Although I've made a broccoli salad and another sweet potato salad with vegannaise, I've always been a little weirded out about the thought of mayo being included in a dish that might sit in the heat. (Actually, I've always been weirded out by mayo in general – anyone else with me on this one?) My distaste for the ingredient is what brings us here today, so I'm perfectly fine with it. Because I LOVE mustard.
And mustard loves sweet potatoes. Together, they create a balance of tangy and sweet, bold and subtle, fresh and comforting.
While this dijon sweet potato salad recipe is perfect for all kinds of warm weather fun, it's also a great way to eat sweet potatoes all. year. round. Because that's what sweet potatoes are for, right?!Print
