Sweet Potato and Apple Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

The nifty thing about this refreshing salad is ... the sweet potatoes are raw. Yes, it can be done! This salad is similar to one created by Charlie Myers at The Gumbo Pot at the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles. It has to be made in advance and sit overnight, so that the raw sweet potatoes can soften and all the flavors can meld properly.

I just knew I would love this recipe! The only problem I had was waiting overnight to eat it. I substituted craisins for the currants, just because I had a huge bag full and am always looking for ways to use them up. I keep thinking about using the sweet potatoes, apples, currants, pecans, some celery and the fruit juices, but then folding in some yogurt instead of the rest of the ingredients. It would be a waldorf salad variation. Thanks for posting this innovative recipe Miss Annie.
