Peppadew Butternut Salad

I’m in a deep love affair with peppadew. On a sandwich, salad or just eaten out of the jar, I just love the amazing taste explosion, that gives me instant heart eyes.  In an attempt to eat peppadew with everything, I had to make this deliciously refreshing, satisfying, oh, so yummy salad.

This butternut salad, is a take on traditional potato salad, but with non of the tradition.  We bought a whole lot of butternut and they’ve just been sitting around waiting to be made into wonderful things, and with Carl’s potato allergy, they were just destined to become a potato substitute.

This is a great recipe for a picnic or a barbecue.
