This potato salad is probably not what many of us would think of when a potato salad makes its appearance on the dinner table. Often we envision Mom's famous potato salad with eggs, mayonnaise and paprika, perhaps, and some green onion. Don't get me wrong — I loved my Mom's classic potato salad and it was always a favorite of mine. Potato salads can however be dressed up further and this one might even be considered a sort of sweet potato and white potato hash with peas and spices. Tangy, spicy and slightly sweet, this dish is a welcome surprise with a variety of textures in each bite — I am quite content to grace it with a salad label. It's vegan friendly too.
Serve this one warm or chilled.
