Serves 6
Sweet & Salty Potato Salad - Thug Kitchen
⅓ cup lime juice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 medium shallots, minced
⅓ cup olive oil
4 pounds sweet potatoes (4-5 large), peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
⅓ cup fresh chives, minced
¼ cup toasted slivered almonds

In a medium glass, stir together the lime juice, red wine vinegar, zest, brown sugar, paprika, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and shallots. Whisk in the oil and set the dressing aside.

Place the sweet potatoes in a steamer basket set over a pot filled with a couple of inches of simmering water. Cover and steam until tender when poked with a knife or fork, about 10-15 minutes. When tender, place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl and pour in the dressing. Toss that shit around until everything is coated. Fold in the celery and chives. Serve hot, room temperature or chill in the fridge up to 8 hours before serving. Top with the toasted almonds and serve it up.
