  1. Place potatoes in two separate saucepans and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn heat to medium-low. Cover, and cook until tender but still firm, 12 to 14 minutes for sweet potatoes, and 10 to 12 minutes for white potatoes. Drain and place in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with vinegar, and cool.
  2. To make the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and curry powder in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix the green onions, celery, and cilantro with the potatoes. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture, and toss to evenly coat vegetables. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving to let flavors blend.

I love this recipe. I make it instead of the old-fashioned salad to accompany down home or caribbean fare. Instead of white I use apple cidar vinegar. ( If youa re not a curry fan it can be omitted)

Did not change a thing when making this. We did not really enjoy the this. The flavors did not come together in a good way. Probably will not make again.

I really like this recipe, the only thing I did differently was to add eggs.

I nuked the spuds and sweet potatoes. This might have been a mistake, as the sweets were very mushy. It ended up like diced spuds in a sweet potato-dressing matrix. I added diced red pepper and defrosted sweet peas to add more color & crunch. I also added a bit of ground cumin and a dash of cinnamon to the dressing. It looked odd, but it was tasty.

Good, but I felt it could've used a little spice. Next time I might add either some cayenne, or some chopped jalapeno. For the record, sweet potatoes looked a LOT better than the potatoes in this salad. Just use all sweet potatoes instead!

Yummmmm! I made it as directed except I added some fresh parsley.
