Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad

 Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad
I came up with this recipe when I promised to bring a potato salad to a picnic but had no regular potatoes on hand. The sweet potatoes were there, so I revised by regular potato salad recipe and a new dish was born! Adding the apples was an extra touch and everybody loved it.
2 ServingsPrep: 35 min. + chilling


  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 medium apple, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons miniature marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Leaf lettuce, optional


  • Place the sweet potato in a small saucepan and cover with water.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 20 minutes or just
  • until tender. Drain and cool completely.
