Tuna Sweet Potato Jackets – Daily Dish Recipe #4

The last Daily Dish recipe in the Low Carb pack that I chose is a tasty, tangy tuna salad combined with the sweet flavours of sweet potato.  A strange combination that works well.  The natural yoghurt used in place of conventional mayonnaise seems to balance all the flavours.
