Sweet Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad

Sunday Cooking with Sis
Week of 1/22

I consider this recipe another Paleo staple.  The dressing is really the star of this dish.  I could eat it by itself (and have) or on a salad, but really the flavors just go so amazing with the sweet potato it's a perfect match.

Someday, I will make my own mayonnaise.  I'm not sure what about it scares me or makes me not want to do it.  I have a lot of recipes for homemade mayonniase.  I know in order to be a true Paleo eater that I totally should ditch the jarred mayo.  I apologize in advance.  Please feel free to make your own mayo for this recipe.



2 cups cooked sweet potato, diced
4 hard-boiled eggs, diced
8 slices cooked bacon, sliced
8 tbsp dill weed, chopped
4 tbsp mayonnaise
4 tbsp lemon juice
