      Very different, and very YUMMY! Loved the textures and the surprising sweetness of this salad. Some looked at it and said, in a funny kind of way, "Are those sweet potatoes?" But once given a try it was liked by all. I toasted coconut to sprinkle on top, and it really added to the tropical flavors! Something I thought I would just like turned into something I will make again! And it's very pretty, too! ZWT9

      This is an unusual way for us to use sweet potatoes. It almost made the sweet potatoes feel like a fruit also. Beautiful golden color set off by the coconut made it a really attractive serving. Made for ZWT5 for the Genies of Gourmet.

      DEFINITELY A WINNER RECIPE at least for me, since I really, really love recipes of all kinds that include sweet potatoes, & this one is a great way to serve them ~ A very satisfying combo of the SPs & all that fruit! Thanks for a very, very nice keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for FAMILY PICKS in ZWT5]
