This came out really, really well . Very pretty, and everyone commented. However, with all these cold, mayonnaise-based salads, I always cut the mayo in half and use a light sour cream for the other. To me, it makes it creamier and a lot healthier without sacraficing taste. Everyone appreciates it, too. With the added mustard, it is really perfect. I salt (everything) very lightly and sprinkled a really good layer of pepper over the potatoes. Also, I used only half the eggs. The celery adds a welcome crunch. Make a big batch so you can enjoy it for a few days! Thanks Dee.


This is a great potato salad! The only substitution I made was green onion - my kids hate biting into bits of raw, hard onion, so chopped green onions always work nicely for me. The sweet potatoes added such a nice touch, and my husband, who thinks he hates sweet potato, thought they were carrots and loved them!


This was definitely different but very good. I think next time I will use 2 sweet potatoes and 1 white potato for a little more of the sweet potato flavor. I loved the different colors of the salad - very appealing!
