Three Potato Salad

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 halved this and used one large sweet potato and several new potatoes (so it's only Two Potato Salad). I doubled the vinegar and added parsley. I made it a couple of hours ahead, but not the night before. Dad doesn't usually even eat potato salad, but he admitted it was good. The rest of us loved it.

    I used green onions instead of regular onions, and it was delicious! I'll be making this recipe over and over and over again!

    The whole family just loved this Recipe. Even my picky 9 year old daughter. It was very easy to make. This is one that I'll be making again and again
