Brazilian Potato Salad

This is my last "Brazilian" post for our trip Around the World this month.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to make any desserts, which my daughter was really excited about!  It's gotten very busy though with summer vacation arriving.  Hopefully next month we'll have some tasty desserts to share!  This potato salad was different than any we'd had before.  It called for sweet potatoes and black beans.....yes, more black beans!  But it was so tasty!  This was my husband's favorite dish.  He thought it could even be a main dish by adding some cooked salmon.  The kids weren't big fans.  My daughter isn't a big fan of sweet potatoes to begin with and my son is an extremely picky eater.  However, I will definitely be making this potato salad again!

1 1/3 lbs sweet potatoes
2/3 tablespoon salt
1/3 cup drained and rinsed black beans
1/3 red onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 1/3 tablespoons olive oil
2/3 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2/3 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon pepper

1. Scrub the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon salt and cover. Bring to a gentle boil and boil for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender. Drain and let stand until the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle.

2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into cubes in a bowl. Add the black beans, onion and cilantro and toss to mix.

3. Whisk the mayonnaise, olive oil, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour over the warm sweet potato mixture and toss to coat.

4. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
