Sweet Potato Salad

"I liked this recipe, because it had a great taste. I got it, in the mail. It was on the back of checks unlimited. It had a good color photo. I will make this again. It is a great one for the holidays. I did not use, but one pound of sweet potatoes,which equal to one potato. I did not have Dijion mustard, but the mustard i had made it turn out wonderful anyway."

    I'd choose this over regular potato salad any day! The Dijon mustard goes so well with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. I garnished with extra chopped green onions. Thanx for posting this; I'll make this again.

    I cooked the sweet potatoes a little to long, next time I won't. Other than that I wouldn't change anything, I loved it and so did my family ?

    I had this at a tea room and loved it. So, I've been looking for a recipe to get an idea what might be in it. Love this..... I cooked my sweet potatoes a little bit too long I think and they were soft. So, next time I will cook them seperate from the other pototes.
