Hawaiian Sweet Potato Salad

This unique salad has a bit of an island flair to it and would make a great addition to a summer cookout or picnic. If you’re in a hurry, instead of baking the sweet potatoes, you can cook them in the microwave. This salad is also a great option if you have leftover sweet potatoes that you need to use up.
