Sweet potatoes, with their beautiful texture and lovely color, are transformed into a lively and fresh tasting potato salad that offers a great spin on the traditional.  Cooking the sweet potatoes in broth makes all the difference and helps infuse every bite of potato with great flavor.

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $3.09

  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potato or yams (about 3 medium), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 3/4 cups Swanson® Vegetable Broth or Swanson® Certified Organic Vegetable Broth
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 green onion, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Tip: You can blend the dressing by adding the ingredients to a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Close the jar and shake well until the ingredients are blended.
  • Step 1

    Place the potatoes into a 3-quart saucepan and add the broth. Heat over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain the potatoes well, reserving 1/4 cup broth. Let the potatoes cool for 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Beat the reserved broth, vinegar and mustard and oil in a large bowl with a fork or whisk. Add the warm potatoes, onions and red pepper and toss to coat.  Season to taste.

    Actually, I'm not a potato salad kind of person. Since my husband is, I made this mainly for him, since he also happens to love sweet potatoes. Well, I hit the jackpot with this recipe; well...actually, HE did because he absolutely loved this. (I must admit, I happened to enjoy it myself.) This would be perfect to make around the holidays, too.
