sweet potato and bacon make an excellent side dish

WARM SWEET POTATO SALAD WITH BALSAMIC BACON VINAIGRETTE

Ingredients
  

  • 3 large sweet potatoes cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 medium red potatoes cut into 1-inch dice
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 slices crisply cooked bacon crumbled
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped

Instructions
 

  • Either boil or steam the cubed potatoes until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Do not overcook — potatoes should still hold their shape. Cool the cooked potatoes slightly.
  • Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, balsamic vinegar, turmeric, chives, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine the bacon, green onions and red onion with the cooked potatoes, tossing carefully. Cover warm potatoes with the dressing. Serve warm garnished with extra chives or green onion.
