Sweet potato salad + lunch salad trio

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? I have an awesome lunch or side dish recipe for you today. It’s a fun twist on potato salad (using sweet potatoes!) and has zero mayo. (Even though I LOVE mayo, I know some people aren’t on board.)

Also, I’m sorry about the blog down time yesterday and for those of you who tried to comment and it wasn’t working. I have post baby bod on the same server, and PBB crashed my main site!! We’re hoping that everything is fixed and stable, and my tiny PBB site may be moving to her own server. They’re some growing pains, but all good things. <3

Here are some adventures from lately. Monday was P’s first trip to the San Diego Zoo. Almost a year old, and we finally ventured to the zoo with some mamas and baby friends from her music class.
