Mommy’s Notorious Potato, Egg & Cumin Salad Version 2.0

Hey babes!

Happy Passover eve & Happy Easter!

Every year on the eve of Passover, my mom was notorious for making us a potato & egg salad seasoned with loads of cumin! My sister & I decided to keep the tradition going this year & to prep it for my dad, only a little healthier! We swapped the white potato for sweet potato & kept everything else just the same!

This sweet potato & chopped egg salad makes for a great side dish or lunch. It’s delicious, nutritious, simple to make & filled with healthy fats, antioxidants, protein, good carbs & tons of flavour! And it’s Passover-friendly!

Sweet potatoes are a great way to incorporate some good carbs into your diet, without feeling heavy!
