Sweet Potato Salad

"Skip the traditional sweet potato casserole and try this salad sensation instead. Writes Roberta freedman of Mesilla Park, New Mexico, 'I really like this different treatment for sweet potatoes--I first tasted something similar at a friend's house years ago. This was a favorite of our children during the holidays. Now it's our grandson's favorite, too.'"
