Sweet Potato Salad Recipe
  • Wash potatoes if using fresh. Cook until tender but firm. If using canned, drain.
  • Peel cooked potatoes and cut into bite sized chunks.
  • In a large bowl, toss potatoes, pineapple, nuts and orange juice. Canned sweet potatoes are soft so toss them gently so they don't break apart.
  • In a small bowl, combine the mayo, milk, vinegar, curry powder, orange peel and tarragon.
  • Pour the over the potato mixture. You may not need to use all of it.
  • Toss gently and chill for several hours.
  • Serve chilled.
