Love the cilantro chipotle sauce for this sweet potato salad recipe. What a fun twist to bring to a potluck.

Forgive me, but this is going to be short. My Father-in-law who lives in Singapore is in the ICU in the hospital on a ventilator. My husband just arrived and we are trying to determine if I will be flying out. I am trying to close out some work. We would love any prayers and positive thoughts you can spare. I am as always so grateful for the support of you all. I know many of you have health issues yourself or are the caregivers for a loved one with healthy issues.

As for this salad, it is divine even though the colors may not look the most appetizing. I should have thought of how the orange color of the sweet potatoes would look with the slightly green, cilantro chipotle sauce. It will look better in person, I assure you. More importantly, it tastes fantastic. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
