“From the Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission: "A fall favorite. The slightly sweet spicy dressing mixed with the toasted pecan flavor makes the yams and pears perfect partners." Note: I know that yams and sweet potatoes are two different vegetables, but the commission used the term interchangeably!”

Directions

  1. In saucepan, cook the yams for 8 to 10 minutes in boiling water just until tender. Do not over cook. Drain; set aside to cool.
  2. Core the pears and cut into chunks. Toss the pears with the lemon juice and mix with the cooled yams in a large bowl. Add the pecans, celery and raisins, mixing gently.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, honey, ginger and salt. Pour the dressing over the yam-pear mixture, mixing gently to coat the salad. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
