We've always had favorite potato salad recipes using white potatoes. And we still love them. 

However the first time I found a recipe for sweet potato salad I knew I had to start a new collection. 

Here are a few of our favorites.

Favorite Sweet Potato Salad Recipe


  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 ribs celery, sliced small
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeds removed and diced
  • 1 cup diced (1/2-inch) ripe fresh pineapple
  • 2 scallions, (use white and green parts), finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Chopped fresh chives, for garnish


Wrap each potato in foil and bake in a 400°F oven for 1 hour or until tender. Cool until easy to handle. Peel andcut into 3/4-inch chunks.

In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise and mustard. Add the sweet potatoes, celery, red pepper, pineapple, and scallions. Toss gently. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerated until chilled, about 1 hour.

Just before serving, fold in the pecans and sprinkle with the chives. Serve chilled.
