Sweet Potato Salad

Sylvie's sweet potato salad recipe, aka Süßkartoffelsalat, is an unusual addition to my German potato salad recipes. Sweet potatoes are not usually thought of as a German vegetable, but they're readily available and used in various ways. This is one of the prettiest and best salad recipes using sweet potatoes I've tried.

Sweet potatoes first found their way to our dinner table and that was, originally, thanks to my daughter-in-love, Sylvie. In her recipe below, the sweet potatoes simply replace part of the regular potatoes.

  • For this salad, both types of potatoes are peeled and then chopped.

Cooking Sweet Potatoes ...

Wonder how to cook sweet potatoes?Just cook them like regular potatoes. They will take a bit longer though, about 30 minutes. Cook until just tender.

Including sweet potatoes in this salad add a lot of extra nutrition. They are rich in fiber, Vitamin C and B6, as well as high in carotene. They are a great source of complex carbohydrates as well. AND, they add such pretty color :-)

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
