2 1/4
lb sweet potatoes (about 4 medium), peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4
cup chopped walnuts
2
lb Granny Smith apples (about 4 medium), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2
tablespoons sugar
2
tablespoons fresh lime juice
3
tablespoons raisins
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup plain fat-free yogurt
3
tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  1. In 4- to 6-quart Dutch oven, place steamer basket; add 1/2 inch water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place sweet potatoes in basket; cover tightly and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; steam covered 16 to 17 minutes or until tender. Plunge potatoes into ice water until cold; drain.

  3. In large bowl, sprinkle apples with sugar and lime juice; toss gently to coat. Stir in sweet potatoes, raisins, salt and 3 tablespoons of the walnuts.
  4. In small bowl, stir together yogurt and mayonnaise. Pour over sweet potato mixture; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon walnuts. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.
