Yam Pineapple Salad

Flavored with celery, cashews & red bell pepper, this salad is not only yummy but is so colorful and makes a lovely dish for holidays.The word yam comes from African words njam, nyami, or djambi, meaning "to eat," and was first recorded in America in 1676. I found it in an ARP magazine from chef Art Smith.

    This is a really great salad. It really was good the way it is, and very refreshing with the pineapple.
