  1. Made this for ladies Bible Study group – they loved it and want the recipe. I didn’t have dijon mustard so used regular – the salad was still amazing.
    I used sliced almonds and toasted them by placing in single layer on cookie sheet and baked them at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes. Watch so they don’t burn!
    I think you can add more sweet potatoes.
