Sweet-Potato Salad with Ham and Curried Almonds
An unusual potato salad, this starts with the homegrown combination of sweet potatoes and ham, and then turns exotic with a sprinkling of curried almonds. We like to perch the whole affair atop a bed of red leaf lettuce, but you can always choose to serve the potato salad without the greens. More Terrific Salads
Variation The curried nuts and ham make great complements to sweet potatoes, but they're excellent with regular boiling potatoes, too.
The sweetness of the potatoes, the spice of the curry, and the saltiness of the ham all point toward Gewürztraminer as the wine of choice. Try a not-too-dry example from Alsace or Washington State for a match made in heaven.
