Herby Sweet Potato Salad

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

  • 2 medium white sweet potatoes (if you can find - can sub in regular potatoes or sweet potatoes) 

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise*

  • 1.5 Tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon mustard (use your favorite)

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill

  • 2 scallions, chopped

  • sea salt & pepper to taste

*Don’t use trash mayo. Check out this post for which mayonnaise to look for!


Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place in boiling water and cook until soft, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, then place in refrigerator to cool. 

 Meanwhile, prepare the dressing: whisk together mayo, olive oil, mustard, and cumin. Stir into cold potatoes and toss to coat.

Stir in cilantro, dill and scallions. Season with sea salt and cracked pepper to taste.
