"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"
"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."
"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."
