About the recipe

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and this salad exemplifies that adage. Faced with leftover sweet potatoes from its dinner menu, the Nacoochee Grill developed this tasty salad. It’s offered as a side for lunch and dinner and is so popular that it is frequently requested in quantities to go.

We used Hellmann’s mayonnaise and Craisins dried cranberries in this recipe.
