Skip the traditional sweet potato casserole and try this salad sensation instead. Writes Roberta freedman of Mesilla Park, New Mexico, "I really like this different treatment for sweet potatoes—I first tasted something similar at a friend's house years ago. This was a favorite of our children during the holidays. Now it's our grandson's favorite, too."
You'll find that this dish is very versatile—more special than everyday but easy enough to make anytime.
Sweet potatoes aren't as popular here in New England as in some parts of the country. I had a friend from Maryland many years ago, however, and we enjoyed swapping recipes. This one's a combination of hers and one I already had in my file.
