    Sydney Mike's Note:

    There are a number of similar recipes here, but this one, I feel, really features the potato ingredient! The original of the recipe was found in the Nov 2003 cookbooklet Crisco Best Recipes -- Year-Round Holiday Magic.

      OMG!!!! This was wonderful! Certainly deserves more than 5 stars. For color sake I used both the both orange and beige fleshed sweet potatoes (who knows what is a yam nowadays as different stores name them differently). Steamed them and did not remove the skin. I suggest not taking it off as the orange potatoes got softer then the beige one and I think the skin kept them from breaking up. The only thing I changed was to use balsamic vinegar instead of cider. Oops, forgot....I added one tbls of mayo at the end as I thought it was a bit dry but that was so very little in this amt. of salad.

      I got only three servings from this recipe - we really liked it a lot. I omitted the relish, and subbed raspberry vinegar for the cider, as I had none of the later. I probably would use just a bit less vinegar next time. I also did not need to use all of the dressing. This is a great and different way to use sweet potatoes, great for summer picnics.
