This was my first time making (or eating) sweet potato salad. It was fabulous! A wonderful change from the mustard potato salad I usually make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty, quick and easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really good--but I added another cup of sweet potatoes, making it 3. Otherwise, for me, I think it might've been a tad bit too mayonnaise-y for us. I might try adding some diced pineapple the next time, too. A welcome change from regular potato salad, and so easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was surprisingly great!! I like a good potato salad, and this was even better than I expected. I didn't think I would like the ginger in it, but it added a very tasty and slightly Asian or Hawaiian flavor. The raisins were also good and fruity in the salad. Perfect just as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So favorful! My family loved it. Such a nice alternative to using a white potato... Nice sweet flavor!! YUM. Also I added more ginger than it called for and some mustard. It needs a touch of acidity! And I used cilantro too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Probably perfect just the way it is but I added a little lemmon zest and some juice to the dressing and it instantly became a new family favorite. A must try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
