This came out really, really well . Very pretty, and everyone commented. However, with all these cold, mayonnaise-based salads, I always cut the mayo in half and use a light sour cream for the other. To me, it makes it creamier and a lot healthier without sacraficing taste. Everyone appreciates it, too. With the added mustard, it is really perfect. I salt (everything) very lightly and sprinkled a really good layer of pepper over the potatoes. Also, I used only half the eggs. The celery adds a welcome crunch. Make a big batch so you can enjoy it for a few days! Thanks Dee.

I enjoyed this recipe. I think the sweet potatos come out best if you steam them.

This is a great potato salad! The only substitution I made was green onion - my kids hate biting into bits of raw, hard onion, so chopped green onions always work nicely for me. The sweet potatoes added such a nice touch, and my husband, who thinks he hates sweet potato, thought they were carrots and loved them!

This was definitely different but very good. I think next time I will use 2 sweet potatoes and 1 white potato for a little more of the sweet potato flavor. I loved the different colors of the salad - very appealing!

I didn't have any eggs on hand & this salad was still great - with eggs I'm sure even better! I found it easier to largely cube the potatoes before boiling, then they only needed twenty minutes cooking time & were all set to toss in the mayo mix.

This potato salad is awesome!!! I made it with red onions which made it a little strong, so next time I'd use a milder onion. It's still delicious!

Very tasty! I decided to do 1/2 regular mustard and 1/2 dijon mustard... added a little zip that I would definitely recommend trying!

I didn't care for the sweet potato in this salad, but the rest was okay. I've had other sweet potato salads that I liked, so I think I just didn't care for the combination of two potatoes.
