Dilly Sweet Potato Salad

Potatoes have always been a family favorite, but this Dilly Sweet Potato Salad made with sweet potatoes, yams and homemade mayo brings a regular potato salad to a whole new level of awesome!


My family loves regular potato salad, but they love this sweet potato variety even more!

For this Dilly Sweet Potato Salad recipe you will need:

  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 small yam
  • 4 chopped hard-boiled eggs (Here is how I boil eggs perfectly every time)
  • 1/4 cup mayo (I use my homemade garlic mayo with Lime essential oil)
  • 1 dill pickle chopped
  • 2 Tbsp of the liquid from the dill pickles OR olive oil (If I use olive oil, I use the wild anithos dill olive oil from our local Prairie Oils and Vinegar store)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1-2 TBSP chopped chives along with a few extra’s to place on top
  • sea salt (to taste)

    I’m use to regular white potatoes but I will definitely use sweet potatoes and yams from now on because it gives a sweeter taste and a little color. Great recipe !
