Sweet Potato Wedges with Yogurt Dip

Call them potato wedges, oven fries or sweet potato tots; these killer taters are our favorite go-to game day appetizer or afternoon snack. The yogurt dip (we use Straus Creamery yogurt for the creamiest result), made a superb golden yellow with the addition of turmeric, turns any leftover roasted potatoes into a delicious potato salad. Simply dice up the roasted sweet potatoes, toss them with the yogurt dip and chill until ready to serve.
