I have recently been diagnosed with a sensitivity to anything in the nightshade family: Tomato, Tomatillo, Eggplant, Potato (excluding sweet potato) Peppers (includes hot and sweet varieties as well as spices like paprika, chili powder, cayenne, and Tabasco) Pimento, Goji berry, Tamarillo, Cape gooseberry/ground cherry, Pepino, Garden huckleberry. Rather sad since I love all of them but I get chronic soft tissue inflammation so avoiding them keeps me pain free This is a very traditional potato egg salad but using sweet potatoes (white yams) instead. The taste is fabulous and a bit sweeter without adding any sweet relish or sugar. Lacto Ovo Vegetarian, Nightshade-free.
