Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet potatoes are packed with nutrients and contain higher quality carbs than regular potatoes. Serve this recipe up as a side dish, and it is sure to be a hit. (You will hardly know you are eating sweet potatoes!)

Ingredients

1 pound sweet potatoes
2 green onions, sliced
1 stalk celery, diced
1/2 cup nonfat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans

Peel the potatoes and cut into ½-inch to ¾-inch cubes. Place in a pot with water to cover. Simmer until potatoes ate tender, about 30 minutes. Drain well and cool. In a bowl, combine the potatoes with the onion and celery. Mix the mayonnaise and lemon juice. Blend into potato mixture. Sprinkle with pecans. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for one hour or more. (Add other vegetables of choice for celery, such as asparagus). Serves 4.
