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.

Regular and sweet potatoes grace this delicious potato salad, made just like Oma.
  • For this salad, both types of potatoes are peeled and then chopped.
  • Check out how to hard boil eggs if you need help making the eggs.
  • Prepare the potatoes and eggs the day before or early in the day. That way, this salad is so quick to put together.

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.

Oma says,

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 :-)
