"It's important to use good mayonnaise in this recipe, and to let the cooked potatoes chill overnight before making the salad. Vary the seasoning amounts to suit your taste." — Patty Hern

Yukon Gold potatoes
jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
fresh lemon juice
chopped fresh parsley
freshly ground black pepper
I like the combo of sweet and white potatoes. If you don't want a mayo-based salad, apple cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil make a fine substitute dressing. Yum...
This was okay but not a big hit at a family gathering. I used half the amount of curry and it was still strong. Probably will not make again.
I thought this recipe was wonderful and truly unique. I rarely give 5 stars, but really felt this recipe was worthy. I used veganaise (instead of regular mayo) and omitted the jalapeno pepper - it was still spicy enough for me. I would suggest you start with half the amount of curry powder and add more to taste. I put the full amount in and felt it was just a tad too strong. It still tasted great, but next time I'm going to try it this way aiming for the "what's in there?" mystery level of curry rather than "wow that curry tastes good". I also substituted 1/2 of the red potatos for blue ones. This made for a very colorful dish.
This is delicious! I used a small onion instead of large, minced jalapenos from a jar, lime juice instead of lemon, half mayonaise and half sour cream, and added two stalks of chopped celery and 4 chopped hard boiled eggs. It was a big hit - I'll make again and again!
I wanted to bring something 'different' to a party. I love love love sweet potatoes, but wasn't crazy about this salad. However, it was a TREMENDOUS hit with everybody and was completely gone in a flash ! Thanks!
Skip the jalapenos if your family isn't into hot stuff, this recipe got rave reviews, I'll use it every time I need to make potato salad
When you want more than just a simple potato salad.
I made this as one of the salads for my son's high school graduation party about a month ago. I'm STILL getting requests for the recipe! I personally don't do sweet potatoes, but this was excellent.
