    weekend cooker's Note:

    A great choice instead of the traditional potato salad. The spices, pineapple, and toasted pecans provide the perfect complement to the naturally sweet yams.

      Yum! I was looking for something different and this is it! Didn't have any green onion and omitted the nuts due to allergy and this is still fantastic! I used pineapple tidbits which were the perfect size for my dish. The nutmeg really stands out. Oh dear, I just realized I forgot to add the lemon juice. Can't wait to make this again and share it with guests.

      Very different and very good! I made a few small changes: roasted 1/2 inch yam cubes tossed with a little olive oil at 425 degrees about 30 minutes instead of boiling. (Had the oven on anyway to toast the pecans.) Left out the celery but might add a diced apple next time to add crunch. Used two green onions instead of an entire bunch. I think I might use pineapple tidbits next time instead of chunks to get the taste of pineapple with every bite. Can't wait to make this again!

      Weirdly warm weather inspired the neighbors to come out for an impromptu barbecue - this was my offering to the table - very well received! I like these sweet potato salads, they are a nice change.
