A GOOD TIME TO TAKE A DOSE OF NIACIN:
RIGHT AFTER YOU EAT SOME OF THIS WONDERFUL POTATO SALAD MADE WITH LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX, HIGH FIBER SWEET POTATOES

(Sandy adapted a recipe from one in POTATO SALAD by Debbie Moose (John Wiley & Sons, 2009))

For about 6 servings, you’ll need

2 pounds of sweet potatoes, cut into 1 – 1 1/2” long pieces

1/2 cup of crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (or any nuts of your choice)

3/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp. Ineffable Essence (optional—we ALWAYS use it)

1/2 cup chopped celery (or, a tsp or two of celery seed)

1/4 cup chopped onion (shallots are nice)

Cook sweet potatoes until they are soft when you poke them with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes (longer if you live at high altitude). Drain. Chop them coarsely until the texture is something like VERY lumpy mashed potatoes. Then put the lumped potatoes and all the other ingredients into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.

This recipe is great either at room temperature or after refrigeration. (But do refrigerate the leftovers, if you have any.)

NOTE: Ineffable Essence is a condiment, one of our formulations, consisting of disodium inosinate (a nucleotide found naturally in foods such as meats, cheeses, and vegetables) and monosodium glutamate (yup, the supposed disaster area is found naturally in foods such as meats, cheeses, and vegetables at doses that have never caused any problems and that is how we use it). Ineffable Essence adds natural substances that degrade in foods that contain them, to restore them to levels of fresh food and that add importantly to the flavor of fresh food.
