This sweet potato dip has asian ingredients: rice wine vinegar and white miso. We like the fusion feature that welcomes people from beyond European cultures to Thanksgiving.

The recipe was created for the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission by Domino Ireland of Raleigh.

You can also thin it with oil and serve it as a salad dressing. Toss in some dried cranberries and pecans for a holiday touch.
