Summer Sweet Potato Salad

We love sweet potatoes. Not only are they packed full of vitamins and minerals, but some studies also show they have cancer-fighting properties! This recipe is one of my all-time favorites. Super simple, with minimal ingredients and a much lighter version to traditional potato salad. *Note I left the pecans out of this batch because Mark is currently not supposed to eat any nuts.
