We’ve been experiencing some seriously summer-like weather here in the Pacific Northwest, and it has me oh-so ready for everything that comes with the gloriousness of the season. Like barbecues! Especially barbecues! Because I’ve decided that this Three Bean Sweet Potato Salad is the perfect thing to take to said barbecues all summer long.

Why? Well …

  1. It’s a potato salad! Potato salads are perfect for barbecues. But …
  2. It’s not mayo-based! So you don’t have to be worried about mayo out in the hot-hot sun (or just the heaviness of mayo for that matter)
  3. It’s vegan and gluten-free, but not so crazy out-there that all the other revelers won’t want to partake too.
  4. So it’s a perfect side for them but would also work as a main for you (assuming you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or all three) if need be.
