A delicious change from regular potato salad. Sweet potatoes are tossed with raisins and walnuts in a sweet creamy dressing. An excellent fall side dish.

I prepared this recipe just as directed. After tasting it I added a tablespoon of lemon juice. It really brought out the flavors. This salad is even better the next day and goes great with a cold turkey sandwich. Read More

This is definitely a different twist on sweet potatoes. I used canned instead of fresh and it turned out somewhat mushy. However I am taking that into consideration in my rating and I give it a four. Read More
