    Submitted by request. This is a new twist to that same old potato salad. Prep time includes time to boil potatoes. Cook time is actually chill time for finished dish.

      Oh! MY GOD!!! This is delicious!!! I used light Mayo, and no orange juice or canned. It is still delicious. I can't wait to try the real recipe with the orange juice and sections. I would have never thought to put mayo on sweet potatoes. The gingr and nutmeg--great. I used fresh for both so cut down on both amounts. Thankyou TGirl,Rn. I have a friend who is dreaming of this as I write.....another southern girl.

      This is a lovely sweet potato salad! I added one cut up granny smith apple to it and didn't use the mandarin oranges. Got some nice compliments at a graduation party today.

      A very unusual, but delicious salad for those who love sweet potatoes. I brought this dish to a luncheon and had several requests for the recipe. You get all the credit Kitz!
