I came up with this recipe when I promised to bring a potato salad to a picnic but had no regular potatoes on hand. The sweet potatoes were there, so I revised my regular potato salad recipe and a new dish was born! Adding the apples was an inspired touch, and the dish was a hit.—Lois Jeffery, Chesterland, Ohio

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1 medium apple, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons miniature marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Leaf lettuce, optional


  1. Place sweet potato in a small saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, covered, until just tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool completely.
  2. Peel potato and cube; combine with next five ingredients. In another bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice; pour over salad, and gently toss. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hour. If desired, serve on lettuce.
