T loves potato salad very much, as and when he will request for it. To make it a healthier option, I substituted potato with sweet potato as it has low GI even though both of them contain similar amount of calories. To make it even healthier, I used 50% calories reduced mayonnaise.
Despite of the changes, it tasted similar to potato salad I used to made. Importantly, the big fan of potato salad loved it very much. Purple is my favourite colour, so my next sweet potato salad will be purple!
