Mint Lime Sweet Potato Salad


I made this refreshing sweet potato salad last night for dinner along with grilled teriyaki chicken . The mint and lime in the sweet potato salad really gave it a bright summery flavor.

I really liked the fact that I can see this sweet potato salad going with to Thai dishs or Mexican dishs.
