  1. Place the diced sweet potatoes and potatoes in a Dutch oven, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil until the potatoes are fork tender, but not mushy, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool the cooked potatoes slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, balsamic vinegar, turmeric, chives, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the bacon, green onions, red onion and cooked potatoes and toss to coat. Serve garnished with extra chives or green onion.

Delicious. I halved the recipe but not the amt. of bacon. I would even add a bit more. Also, I would use medium sweet potatoes rather than lg. as well as med. white potatoes. I would definitely make it again.

This recipe had me worried once I started actually making them, it seemed a little over the top with taste but it was delicious!! Over cooked the potatoes a little but it was still really good!

Very good! I decreased the recipe to 6 servings, but increased the bacon to 4 slices. I actually enjoyed this more cold than I did warm, but either way is good. Thanks for the recipe!

Absolute hit with the family. Think I will be getting requests for this one in the future!

I had to leave out the red onion because I didn't have any, but followed the recipe other than that. It was good warm, but it was great cold! The flavors really had time to meld, and I don't think that it needed the red onions after all, it was "oniony" enough. Next time I make this I'm going to try it with just the sweet potatoes ,yummy!
