    SharonChen's Note:

    This salad is my all time favorite salad! It's perfect as a side dish for steaks or even greens. It also can be served as a main since it encompasses so many different layers of flavor all in the same dish. I absolutely adore the smell, the color, and the taste of this salad! Hope you like it too! :)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb yukon gold potato, peeled and quartered
    • 4 ounces garnet yams, peeled and cut into same size as quartered Yukon potatoes
    • 1/4 cup carrot, very finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup red cabbage, very finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup cucumber, very finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup ham, finely diced (for vegetarians, leave the ham out)
    • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon, finely chopped or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
    • 5 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • sea salt & fresh ground pepper


    1. 1
      Place the Yukon potatoes into a saucepan and cover with cold water (leave enough room for the yam). Add 1 teaspoon sea salt and bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add Garnet yam (all the potatoes and yam should still be covered by the water) into the saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes or until done.
    3. 3
      While simmering the potatoes and yam, chop all the veggies, ham and tarragon.
    4. 4
      Drain the potatoes and yam. Mash them all together in a large bowl.
    5. 5
      Add mayonnaise, ground black pepper and all finely chopped ingredients into the same bowl. Stir until even.
    6. 6
      Add more sea salt or pepper, if desired. Let the salad stay in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
