BEST POTATO SALAD EVER!!! :D Oh my gosh. I used dill pickle relish because thats all I had, and I added a pinch of sugar, but other then that, I made it exactly as directed. This is going straight into my Best of 2012 cookbook!! Thanks!! :D

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.

Great salad to go with our burger. Made half the recipe for one sweet potato. Will make less dressing next time. First time steaming sweet potato, mine took more than 15 min.

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.

This is wonderful! I roasted my sweet potatoes with the skins on with a little olive oil, cracked black pepper and sea salt. Let them cool then mixed with other salad ingredients. I added more sweet pickle relish to the salad. Also added a little sugar to the dressing. We are not fond of a strong vinegar flavor so I cut it with the sweetness. Everyone loved it- even those who say they do not like sweet potatoes. Better after cooling!

Great-tasting, different style of potato salad! Cold or at room temperature, I enjoyed it a lot. It made too much dressing, IMO, but we just didn't use it all. (I cut the oil to 2 Tbsp. and halved the salt to make it even healthier.) Thanks for this one!

So easy and so very nice. Made exactly as written and it was a great salad. It also looks so attractive when made, such great colours together. I would never have thought to make a seet potato salad, but will be making this one more often now. Thanks Syd..loved this one.

Liked by all. I made a few adjustments due to not having ingredients. I used champagne vinegar since I was out of cider vinegar. Used two sweet potatoes and two red potatoes,and yukon golds. Substituted 1/4 C jarred pimento (was lacking the red pepper). It all came together as far as taste and appearance. I will definitely make this one again-really like the change of the vinegar. Thank you

Great recipe! Thanks for posting. I didn't have the red pepper so doubled up on the onion, still tasted great. Also, for those of us with fur children, I doubled the amount of sweet potato, made salad out of half and the babies can have the rest plain this week.
