Sweet Potato Apple Salad

6 medium sweet potatoes, about 21/2 pounds
1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cider or white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 medium tart apples, chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced

In a large saucepan, cook sweet potatoes in boiling salted water until just tender, about 20 minutes. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the next nine ingredients and shake well.

Peel potatoes, cut each in half lengthwise, then into 1/2 inch slices.

In a 4-quart bowl, layer a fourth of the sweet potatoes, apples and onions; drizzle with a fourth of the salad dressing. Repeat layers three times. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Toss before serving. Yields 8 to 10 servings.

Note: This is a good accompaniment to a turkey dinner.
