Looking to spruce up your usual summer potato salad? By adding just a couple special ingredients or even changing the type of potato, you can bring that ordinary potato salad back to life. Here I used sweet potato to give this potato salad an unusual kick. The color combination of orange and black is more Halloween than Fourth of July, but to me this salad is all summer.

I prefer it to regular potato salad because sweet potato can be more flavorful and dimensional, as well as healthier because of its fiber content.

I’ve been cooking a lot with prosciutto. Mostly because it’s delicious, but also to share it’s versatility with you. Packed with flavor, prosciutto improves many dishes with only a small amount, which is easy on your wallet (and figure).
