Sweet Potato Salad
This idea came to me a while back: If you can have a potato salad then why not a sweet potato salad? I started with no preconceived notions about what should go into it. It certainly didn’t have to be the same as regular potato salad. This is what I came up with. It was a hit the first time and has been a hit several times since then. You may want to experiment with other ingredients.

Sweet Potato Salad
  • 2 - 2½ pounds Sweet Potatos
  • 2 Small Jalapenos, seeded and chopped fine. Leave seeds in for a spicier salad.
  • ½ cup chopped, toasted pecans
  • ½ cup chopped chives or green onions
  • ¼ tsp dill weed
  • Juice of 2 lemons or limes
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  1. Boil sweet potatoes for 45-60 minutes. You want them slightly firm, not too soft.
  2. Cool, peel and cut the potatoes into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Combine all ingredients.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more before serving.
  5. Enjoy.

  1. I made this and I loved how simple and delicious it is. I am sick of mayonaise based salads and this was an easy refreshing different salad. Thanks!
