If memory serves me correctly, this may just be the very first recipe to ever hit this DwD Blog. I couldn't resist it ... after last weekend's Recipe Showdown, my stomach hasn't stopped craving this delicious and most popular side dish from one of Historic Roswell's hot spots - INDIGO. Chef Todd Hogan proudly created this dish and if you love some great southern flair .... then try this winner next time you are looking to impress even your own taste buds!
SWEET POTATO SALAD
3 large Sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
3/4 cup Red onion, diced
2/3 cup Celery, diced
1 tbsp Ginger root, peeled and grated
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Parsley
1/2 cup raisins
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp pepper
* Cook potatoes in salted water until tender. Cool on sheet tray
* While potatoes cool, place all other ingredients in mixing bowl and mix together
* Fold in cooked potatoes and allow to sit for at least 4 hours before serving.
(optional: you can serve this warmed as well .... Mmmmm!)
Not only does this dish capture the sassiness of the south, but it will have your kitchen smelling like a southern dream. Happy Cooking and let me know how it turns out for ya.
Thank you Chef Todd Hogan (and Owner) of Indigo Restaurant.
