Low-Country Sweet Potato Salad
This picnic salad features sweet potatoes and sesame seeds, an important part of cooking along the South Carolina coast.
Why This Recipe Works
Sweet potatoes and sesame seeds are the stars of this low-country sweet potato salad recipe. Tossing the raw, cubed sweet potatoes with diced bacon, minced shallot, and seasonings and roasting them together helped the potatoes absorb the flavors. A hefty dose of cayenne pepper and Tabasco sauce lend this low-country sweet potato salad a real kick and an intense spiciness characteristic of many South Carolina dishes.
