This kumara salad is hearty enough for a main dish but is not loaded with sugar or butter. The bacon, mustard and vinegar give it a a nice tang and the mayonnaise rounds out the flavour.

Altered ingredient amounts. I used 3 large sweet potatoes, no turmeric, and no green onions. This is a delightful tasting salad! It went over well in a salad buffet spread! - 29 Sep 2009
