Potato salad is a summertime classic, but with all that mayonnaise, it’s not exactly what the doctor ordered for overall health!
Swap your mayonnaise-laden, white potato salad for this colorful and nutritious recipe, which features sweet potatoes, a lively citrus dressing, and vitamin-rich spinach.
The sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene...they have more beta-carotene (a whopping 25,000 IU in one baked sweet potat with skin), vitamin C, folate, calcium and manganese than white spuds. Another plus...even the seasonings in this recipe have nutritional benefits.
