Healthy Cranberry Sweet Potato Salad made with only 4 ingredients and coated with a yogurt dressing and studded with cranberries and pecans for a thanksgiving take on potato salad!
My Mom gets so mad every time Bethany and I make a recipe….
and actually, I don’t blame her. She loves the end result but the process of making the recipe is what gets her angry and we are both 100% to blame because it looks like a tornado has gone through the kitchen. I don’t ask her to clean up either but she can’t stand seeing messes so she does anyone, so shout out to Mom for being the real MVP! She forgives us overtime she tastes one of the recipes though 🙂
This is actually one of the rare times I did not make my Mom angry because I actually left no mess! This Cranberry Sweet Potato Salad is like a thanksgiving version of potato salad and only contains 4 ingredients, yes only 4!
