Sweet Potato or Yam Salad

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com Another variety of a great potato salad!

1-2 yams or sweet potatoes
1-2 ribs celery
2-3 green onions
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1-2 tablespoons diced sweet pickles, or pickle relish
1 cup gouda cheese, diced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sweet pickle juice, or vinegar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Scrub and tidy up the potatoes, peeling as necessary. Cut into small chunks. Place in a glass or ceramic batter bowl and cover with a glass or ceramic plate or lid. Cook in microwave 4 - 6 minutes or just until tender when pierced with a fork. (usually 3 - 4 minutes per potato) Allow to cool a bit and then combine yams, celery, onions, coconut, pickles, and cheese in a beautiful bowl. In glass measuring cup, combine mayonnaise, pickle juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Whisk to make a dressing. Pour over potato mixture, toss, and serve over green leaves. Raisins and / or chutney are also great tossed into this.
