This recipe for curried sweet potato salad is delicious and easy to make! Throw it together quickly for a fantastic side dish that’s flavorful, slightly sweet, full of texture and fresh ingredients!


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1/4 large red onion, diced
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry (You may want to start with 1/2 teaspoon and increase to taste. We love a strong curry flavor!)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise (For a healthier dish, you can try using plain Greek yogurt.)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (or 2 teaspoons dried cilantro)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons dried cranberries


  1. Place sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Cover with a lid, bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 12 – 15 minutes
  2. Drain sweet potatoes and place in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes, until slightly cool
  3. Stir together remaining ingredients until evenly mixed
  4. Pour curry mayonnaise mixture on top of sweet potatoes and toss to completely coat the sweet potatoes
  5. Refrigerate until curried sweet potatoes are cold and enjoy
