Yam (Sweet Potato) Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

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.

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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, steam prepared yams 10 to 15 minutes or until tender, then remove from steamer.
  2. When cool enough to handle, peel yams (if desired; I don't), then place in a large salad bowl.
  3. While yams cool, combine vinegar, pickle relish, mustard, salt & pepper in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, & shake well.
  4. Add vegetable oil & shake again, before pouring over yams & tossing them to coat.
  5. Add green onions & red pepper & either serve at room temperature or chilled.
