    Default Sweet Potato Salad

    Well-it's taken me three months to get re-inspired and out of my funk, but I finally created (well, RE-created) something cool in my 'new' kitchen.

    One of my horse friends had this somewhere, wrote down what was in it, recreated it and fed me some....which prompted me to write down the ingredients and do the same!

    Amounts-up to re-creator's discretion, likes and dislikes....

    Cooked/peeled sweet potatoes
    Diced red onion
    Chopped celery
    Chopped pecans (I actually used sliced almonds)
    Chopped flat leaf parsley
    Dried cranberries (I used dried 'mixed berries')
    Lemon juice
    Olive oil

    Cook sweet potatoes, peel and cut into good sized chunks. I let mine cool to peel and then cut them up and tossed them in with other ingredients. I keep it in the fridge and serve cold, and it gets better after sitting a few hours!

    I'm sure there are lots of variations that would be equally excellent.

    Jenny, how did you know I had a bag of sweet potatoes on my counter needing a purpose in life? I'm going to try this--it sounds delicious!
