Sweet Potato and Ginger Slaw Times 2

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This was printed in my local newspaper and I gave it a try. A very different way to serve sweet potatoes and so delicious. The great joy in this recipe is it gives you a variation for day one and then on day 2 you can dress it up a little differently and enjoy once again.

Day 2 was a big hit and day 1 was good, too. The 1.5 pounds of sweet potatoes (3 medium) made a lot. I would cut back to 1 pound (2 sweet potatoes) next time. Thanks for two new healthy and easy meals.
