This asparagus sweet potato salad should be at your next BBQ, it does not disappoint. I love asaparagus and when asparagus is in season this salad is so flavourful. Asparagus works so well with so many flavours but dill has to be my favourite and I feel like this salad is an elevated twist on a great classic.
