Top Review by Chef PotPie

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
