Bobi's Bites: Potato Salad - on the Sweet Side!



My mom threw this together one night when we were in Florida last week. It was delicious! With every bite my brain didn't know whether to register sweet, salty or savory. I enjoyed the confusion immensely! Confuse your brain today and whip up a batch!

2 Sweet potatoes
3 white potatoes
1 cup mayonnaise (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon PickaPeppa Sauce (may substitute Worcester sauce)
1/2 red onion, minced
1 stalk celery (she wanted to put 2 stalks in - but you know how I feel about celery)
4 oz pimentos, drained
6 slices bacon, cooked until crisp

Peel and dice potatoes. Boil white potatoes - about 1/2 way through add sweet potatoes. Drain when fork tender. Cool in fridge at least 1 hour.
Mix remaining ingredients then add cooled potatoes to mixture. Serve and Enjoy!

I have been loving sweet potatoes lately, and anything with bacon is certainly worth trying. Potato salad can be so blah sometimes; this sounds great for our next picnic {if we get a really warm day again soon}.

This looks great - and I love the sweet potato addition! I'll have to search for the pickadilly sauce or whatever its called.
