I love potato salad in all it’s varieties. There is something a bit special about a duck fat roasted potato salad that pushes it to above the ordinary though, don’t you think? I added one sweet potato to the salad pictured, and it did add more than a splash of colour...yummy! Just yummy. Hopefully this salad will be featuring throughout your summer menus as well! Bon Appe-BBQ.
