GEORGIA SWEET POTATO SALAD This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the McBride Estate in Austin, Texas in 1994. 2 pounds peeled cubed sweet potatoes 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons orange juice 1 tablespoon honey 1 teaspoon grated orange peel 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1 cup sliced celery 1/3 cup chopped dates 1/2 cup chopped pecans Lettuce leaves 11 ounce can mandarin oranges drained Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender then drain and toss with lemon juice. In large bowl combine mayonnaise, juice, honey, peel, ginger, salt and nutmeg. Add in warm potatoes, celery and dates then toss to coat well. Cover and chill. Stir in pecans before serving. Spoon salad onto lettuce lined plate and arrange oranges around salad.
