    Sweet Potato Salad-EDwRR

    We had this simple dish with some grill pork the other night and it is very good. Not the best sweet potato salad I have had but simple and good.

    I'm curious, Terry. . . what is the best sweet potato salad you've had? I'd love to have a good recipe.

    I was thinking the same thing LOL. What's the best recipe?

    I do like having options. Sometimes it's not the "best recipe" that I want to make - I might want to make one that's healthier or easier or cheaper or whatever.

    All good recipes are needed!

    I love this one posted by Blazedog a few years ago. Some of the reviews suggest cooking the sweet potatoes a few minutes less than the recipe calls for and draining them VERY well (ie ~5 minutes) to avoid any mushiness.

    If you're still looking for T&Ts--We've enjoyed this one through the years, posted way back by Bobmark from Everyday Food (also posted thread link with suggestions on using powdered ginger):

    (Everyday Food; June 2005) (posted by Bobmark CLBB)

    Serves 4

    1. Preheat oven to 425. On a nonstick rimmed baking sheet toss 2-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 3/4" chunks, with one Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp. coarse salt, and 1/4 tsp ground pepper; roast until fork tender, about 35 minutes.

    2. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 Tbsps. fresh orange juice, 1 Tbsp oil, 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger, and 2 tsps. Dijon mustard.

    3. Add 3 scallions, thinly sliced crosswise, and potatoes; toss to coat with dressing. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature.

    That first recipe by RR posted by Terry looks easy and good, thank you, going on the menu this week! Love sweet potatoes every way (except canned).

    Thanks for posting theses recipes. I have tried to like sweet potato salad, but never found the right recipe. The three here really sound good. Will eventually try all of them.
