There isn’t anything too crazy about this little recipe, but there is a special ingredient involved that you don’t normally see in tuna salad = baked sweet potato chunks.
Most weeks I bake 1 or 2 sweet potatoes in the oven and once they’re cool I store them in the fridge for meals throughout the week.
