This came out really, really well . Very pretty, and everyone commented. However, with all these cold, mayonnaise-based salads, I always cut the mayo in half and use a light sour cream for the other. To me, it makes it creamier and a lot healthier without sacraficing taste. Everyone appreciates it, too. With the added mustard, it is really perfect. I salt (everything) very lightly and sprinkled a really good layer of pepper over the potatoes. Also, I used only half the eggs. The celery adds a welcome crunch. Make a big batch so you can enjoy it for a few days! Thanks Dee. Read More

I enjoyed this recipe. I think the sweet potatos come out best if you steam them. Read More

This is a great potato salad! The only substitution I made was green onion - my kids hate biting into bits of raw, hard onion, so chopped green onions always work nicely for me. The sweet potatoes added such a nice touch, and my husband, who thinks he hates sweet potato, thought they were carrots and loved them! Read More

This was definitely different but very good. I think next time I will use 2 sweet potatoes and 1 white potato for a little more of the sweet potato flavor. I loved the different colors of the salad - very appealing! Read More

I didn't have any eggs on hand & this salad was still great - with eggs I'm sure even better! I found it easier to largely cube the potatoes before boiling then they only needed twenty minutes cooking time & were all set to toss in the mayo mix. Read More

Very tasty! I decided to do 1/2 regular mustard and 1/2 dijon mustard... added a little zip that I would definitely recommend trying! Read More

This potato salad is awesome!!! I made it with red onions which made it a little strong so next time I'd use a milder onion. It's still delicious! Read More

I didn't care for the sweet potato in this salad but the rest was okay. I've had other sweet potato salads that I liked so I think I just didn't care for the combination of two potatoes. Read More

Delicious! I omitted the celery because I don't like it and it tasted wonderful. I'm going to try making tofu mayonnaise sometime just for this recipe. Then it'll be truly healthy and hopefully delicious with all the other strong flavors. Thanks! Read More
