Do you ever look at a recipe and think

I don’t know.  Sure sounds good, but I don’t think the children will like it {or whoever is the picky eater in your house}.

I do.  My children really are not that picky, but often they turn up their noses just because a dish is new.  This week’s recipe is one of those that I questioned, but decided to go for it.  I liked the sound of the flavors it combined and new that most of the items were ones my children would eat.

Go figure… they LOVED it.  The recipe got rave reviews and they asked for seconds!  Score one for Mom!

Sweet Potato Salad

  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 medium sized Granny Smith apples, chopped
  • 2 cans 11 oz. mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 20 oz can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 cup sliced celery

Place whole, unpeeled sweet potatoes in a saucepan.  Add 2 inches of water.  Cover and cook over medium high heat until tender in the middle but not mushy.  Mine took about 20 minutes, but it would really depend on how thick they are.

Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise and yogurt in large bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and toss to coat.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and cut into chunks.  Add to bowl and toss well.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.

Note:  The original recipe did call for 1 tsp of curry, but I did not have that on hand and do not like spicy foods.  If you try it with that, let us know how it tastes!
