Curried Sweet Potato Salad – Sweet Potato on the Table – Part 3

November 15th, 2009 / Comments 3

When I see a sweet potato I think of my friend Pen who replaced her usual morning bagel or donut with a baked sweet potato. She wrapped a roasted sweet potato, still hot from the oven, in a thick layer of newspaper and tucked it into her pocket – it was ready when she was, a perfect breakfast on the run without crumbs or empty calories.

Sweet potato salad is another way to add this healthy vegetable to your diet and is great alternative to white potato salad.

Curried Sweet Potato Salad

This single potato recipe serves four but can be multiplied to serve an entire committee.

I cooked one large sweet potato in the microwave for four minutes until it was just tender. When cool enough to handle, I peeled and cut it into one-inch cubes and added two stalks of celery, diced, and unpeeled red apple, also diced, to the potato cubes.

I dressed the salad with a sauce made by combining a quarter of a cup of mayonnaise, one teaspoon of curry powder, a pinch of cayenne pepper and the juice of half a lime. Topped with minced, fresh cilantro it was ready to go.

    what a great idea, we are trying to use more deeply colored items and raw whan possible. May try this and just barely steam them…. awesome.

    I have a recipe for a savory sweet potato salad, somewhere. I used to make it all the time. You are reviving good memories.

    Since, I do not know where my recipe is, I plan to adopt yours. You did a good deed without knowing it. Thanks.
