This was very good. I used new baby red potatoes and just left them whole. I also added some cayenne pepper because I like things spicy. I also only had light mayonnaise but it still tasted great. I served this to my fiance and two of our friends. My fiance doesn't really like sweet potatoes but he ate all of his. Everyone really enjoyed it.

This was just OK I thought. I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't love it either. I served it to my parents who like potato salad and neither of them finished what they took. Maybe it wasn't traditional enough for them? I think it's a hard recipe...it wasn't traditional for those wanting that but not really interesting enough for those wanting something really different. I wouldn't make it again.

This salad includes enough of the conventional "potato salad" ingredients to keep the traditionaslist happy but the addition of the sweet potatoes makes it just different enough that most eaters will comment on it. The folks I served it to really liked it.

I made this to take to a Thanksgiving potluck and thought it was very tasty. Next time though I would peel potatoes and cube instead of slice. Also, I couldn't find any dill relish -- I used sweet. Yummy!

I made this for sweet potato lovers and everyone thought it was "just okay". Won't make it again, not a bad recipe, just not to our liking.

wonderful- make sure you use sweet potatoes and not yams!

Delightful.... I followed the recipe exactly and found the dressing with fresh parsley to be very tasty. The next time I'm going to add some hard boiled eggs. This would be an outstanding dish to bring to a pot luck dinner.
