This Ginger Apple and Sweet Potato Salad is an easy, gourmet recipe and would make a great addition to any outdoor event. The flavors of this salad are exploding with sweetness and starchiness from the sweet potatoes and apples, citrus, mint and autumn spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. This recipe serves two, but feel free to double or triple it to serve at any event.
