Sweet Potato Salad

We are sharing Holiday Sides this Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Just in time for your Holiday Meal Planning......
This event is being hosted by Heather of Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks.  Heather invited us to share our favorite holiday side dishes this week.

Here is what is being shared today.......
sweet potatoes and red onions

This easy salad starts by roasting diced sweet potato with red onion.  It can be served warm or at room temperature, making it the perfect holiday side dish.  You can adjust the ingredients to serve 4, as written, to 12 or more.

My husband, who is not a sweet potato lover, ate 2 servings of this salad when I served it.  Sweet potatoes are the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving, in my opinion, and this salad can be served alongside your traditional mashed potatoes.
