My daughter and I found this recipe several years ago, and since then it has become a regular on our Christmas menu. Strangely, this dish appeals especially to women. Women always return for seconds and request the recipe, while men may politely try a bite or two. We serve it mainly with chicken or turkey. With an apple or banana on the side, it also makes a filling and nutritious packed lunch. Somehow the sweet potato sticks by you so that you're not reaching for a snack at mid-afternoon.

  • Peel cooled sweet potato and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.

  • Cut each orange segment into 3 pieces. Place sweet potato and orange pieces in a bowl; add raisins.

  • Mix lemon juice and honey together in a bowl; pour over potato-orange mixture. Add a pinch of salt and sprinkle walnuts over salad.

Cook's Note:

Canned mandarin orange segments can be used in place of the fresh orange, if desired.
