Purple Sweet Potato Fingerling Salad Recipe

We first had sweet potatoes as a mashed side dish when visiting Kauai a couple years ago.  I came across some slips from a seed catalogue and grew my first crop of sweet potatoes.  Last winter I made slips of my own from saved 'taters and lo!  A bumper crop from 18 plants!

As I was digging them we discovered several fingerlings and smaller bits, so we came up with this salad which is good hot or cold!

Ingredients:

• 2 pounds unwashed and untrimmed sweet potato fingerlings
• 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
• 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
• 1/8 cup honey
• 1 tsp salt (I like to use the red Hawaiian salt)
• 1 large or 2 small crisp, tart apples, diced (Macintosh or Jonathan)
• 1 cup broken walnut pieces
• 3 tbsp Greek yogurt, sour cream or drained kefir (optional)



1. Wash and scrub the fingerlings.  Their skin will be tender so they will not need to be peeled.
