Sweet potato salad

I can eat a portion of sweet potato more easily than white potato. Does anyone make a sweet potato salad? I'd love to hear what you use to make it really good.

  1. andouille sausage, green onions, fresh herbs, fresh OJ, chipotle peppers, roasted red peppers...

    1. black beans, cilantro, green onions, just enough mayo to bind, srichacha to taste. Those crispy fried onions (used for the iconic green bean casserole) are a tasty garnish.

      Sometimes I add leftover salmon to the salad.

      1. I make a potato salad with 1/2 sweet, 1/2 yukon golds, add chopped red onion, raisins (plumped in some rum or water if you like), then dressed with a mix of major greys chutney, a little sherry vinegar and mayo; Delish!

        1. I haven't tried this, but I want to make as it looks very good!! I would probably use all sweet potato myself....

          1. I use half and half sweet potatoes and Japanese yams.

              The Japanese yams are yellow, no? I've eaten them as Japanese sweet potatoes, and I loved them. There are so many varieties of sw. potatoes, but I have access to maybe 2 sorts, sometimes 3 most of the time.

                Yes, Japanese yams are yellow-ish.
