In the Kitchen with Brian and Lisa: Curried Sweet Potato Salad

by | Feb 9, 2012

WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.

If you’re burned out on potato chips and fries, try this healthy alternative next time you need a side item. Lisa found this recipe for Curried Sweet Potato Salad in the Sugar Solution Cookbook. It’s low in sugar and full of complex carbohydrates. Start by peeling and cooking two pounds of sweet potatoes. Next, make the dressing by combining yogurt, light mayonnaise, brown sugar, curry powder and salt. Cover the potatoes with the dressing, then add pineapples and scallions to the dish. Finally, sprinkle N.C. pecans on top and serve.
