Sweet Potato Salad

Our last Patient Appreciation Day was a huge success and a lot of fun for everyone who got to be a part of it. If you were unable to make it to our July patriotic cookout themed PAD, I wanted to make sure you at least got your hands on our most requested recipe of the day: The Sweet Potato Salad. If you are like me and love having a potato salad at a picnic but avoid eating starchy white potatoes, this may be a new favorite of yours as well! I hope you enjoy it, as well as join us for our next Patient Appreciation Day focusing on Back to School lunch and snack ideas (that really work for the whole family!).
