Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad Recipe

Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + chilling YIELD:2 servings


  • 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


  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Peel the potato and cut into cubes; place in a small bowl. Add the apple, celery, walnuts, raisins and marshmallows. In another bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice; pour over salad and toss gently. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 3. Serve on lettuce-lined plates if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

"Only change I made was to use dried cranberries in place of the raisins. I loved the taste and texture combinations of this salad! However, husband and kids didn't much care for it...the 4 of them agreed that the sweet potato seemed bland next to the sweetness of the apples and cranberries."

"Actually, I enjoyed this dish. Something different. The kids did not care for it all. More of an adult dish"
