This pretty salad - made with white, red and sweet potatoes - tastes as good as it looks. The mild dill dressing enhances the tender spuds and onion, especially if you refrigerate it overnight. Even those who don't like sweet potatoes like this salad. -Nan Cairo, Greenwood, Delaware

"I have made this numerous times and always get asked for the recipe. So far I haven't changed anything, and it's excellent. It's very quick and simple and is great the same day, but much better the next day. Thank you for posting this recipe."

"My coworkers raved about this salad when I brought it to a potluck last week, and my husband was so disappointed I took it to work instead of letting him eat all of it! Tonight I am making it again, but going to try green onions instead of the white one I used last time."

"This potato salad was a big hit at a family gathering. The only change I made was I roasted the potaatoes with olive oil and rosemary, then put together with dressing."
