    I just made a batch of it last night. One thing to remember, make sure you cook the sweet potatoes enough. If they are not soft enough to mash up a bit and color the rest of the salad, tehy are not done enough. I made that mistake once and the entire salad was NOT the same, let me tell ya. <grin>
    It is a really good variant yet still familiar enough, ya know? ANyways, I think you two will really enjoy it. Make sure and let me know what you think of it <grin>

    I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend your right to say it.

    My favorite pasta salad~

    Club Salad

    1 pkg. chicken breasts, poached, cooled, and diced (or use leftover) OR turkey, diced (good use for leftover turkey)
    1 lb. bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
    1 or 2 tomatoes, diced
    1/2 head of lettuce, chopped or torn
    1 lb. spiral noodles, cooked and cooled
    mayonnaise OR Ranch dressing

    In large bowl, mix chicken (or turkey), lettuce, tomato, bacon, and noodles. Blend in enough mayonnaise (or Ranch dressing) to moisten. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chill well and serve cold.

    For a change, you can add cheese, onion, or anything else your little heart desires.

    My kids' favorite pasta salad~

    Oriental Tuna Salad

    1 lb. spaghetti noodles, cooked, drained, and rinsed with cold water (or leftover)
    2 cans tuna, drained
    1 small can crushed pineapple, drained (or about half a 15 oz. can - more if you want)
    1 small onion, minced or grated
    1/2 c. chopped nuts (I use walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, cashews, or a combination)
    1/2 c. coconut (toasted or not - up to you)
    1/2 bottle Italian dressing (more or less - to moisten)
    1 T. soy sauce
    black pepper (to taste)
    celery, sliced (optional)

    Mix everything together and serve.
