Sweet Potato and Orange Salad

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Place sweet potato into a microwave steamer with a rack; add water. Cook in the microwave until sweet potato is soft but not mushy, about 8 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes.
  2. Peel cooled sweet potato and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  3. Cut each orange segment into 3 pieces. Place sweet potato and orange pieces in a bowl; add raisins.
  4. 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.
