    I made this tonight and what a yummy combination. I used light mayo and nonfat plain yogurt along with chutney and curry powder and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. I also added chopped cilantro (I didn't use scallions because my husband is allergic). Now I'm thinking of the other possibilities for the mayo/yogurt/chutney sauce--a marinade for salmon, perhaps.

    Wow, this was so good! I kind of eyeballed everything and scaled it down for 2. I used Grey's mango chutney. Loved the flavor! Made for ZWT#7 by a fellow Food.Commando. :)

    WoW! There aren't enough words to describe this flavor explosion of a salad. Sweet, tart, sassy, pretty, and totally wonderful. Each bite was swoon worthy. In an attempt to lower the fat I used half reduced fat mayo and half plain yogurt. I also added diced red pepper and fresh cilantro for a colorful presentation. I know I'll be making this salad again & again. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Discovered in the Best of ZWT7 thread. :-)

    I used one can (29 oz.) of sweet potatoes, cut up bite-sized, and 4 white potatoes. We found out that our mango chutney is pretty strong, so the salad was too hot for us - my fault. Since I did not have any parsley, I skipped that. The three of us had about half of it left, so I will boil another 4 white potatoes, and maybe add a little more Miracle Whip to dilute the intense taste. We did like, and I will adjust measurements here and there to make it just to our tastes. I will **definitely** be making this again! Update: I did add 4 more white potatoes and 1 to 1 1/2 c. of additional Miracle Whip, and it was wonderful! We will not have it left for long. Looooove it!!
