Moroccan Sweet Potato Salad

When we think of potato salad we generally think of white potatoes smothered in salad dressing. This recipe changes things up a bit by using Sweet potato, dried fruit and a tangy marinade. You can buy a jar of Moroccan Seasoning / Ras El Hanout but its expensive to buy those small jars....much better to make it from scratch and store it in an airtight container. This can then be used for lamb or pork dishes or even a coating on potato wedgesand tailored to suit your tastes. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.
