Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Salad – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Sweet, tangy and super creamy, Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Salad is a must this summer served with grilled burgers, chicken or fish.

I love a good potato salad with warm food and in fact, I served this delicious potato salad alongside a grill piece of salmon.  I got turned on to this combination years ago at a restaurant in Portland Oregon.  The chef prepared a pan seared fish with a delightful chilled potato salad on the side that I will never forget, and soon after I began making a similar dish at home.

Using sweet potatoes, not yams, to prepare this salad is key because they have a lighter flavor and soak up that honey mustard dressing just right.  It’s a quick salad to prepare in one bowl and the potatoes cook quickly because of the small dice.
