1. First, peel the sweet potatoes and cut into approx. ½" cubes.
2. Then, steam the sweet potatoes. You can do this one of two ways:
3. Stovetop method: Heat about one inch of water in a medium saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Add a steamer insert, then the sweet potato cubes and cover. Steam for about 8-12 minutes, until a fork easily slides in. You want them tender but not mushy.
4. Microwave method: Add the sweet potatoes to a microwave-safe bowl and add about ¼ cup water. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a small vent somewhere along the rim of the bowl. Microwave for about 6-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until a fork easily slides in. You want them tender but not mushy.
5. Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet and let cool completely. You can also then put the baking sheet in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.
6. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl mix together the mayo and mustard.
7. Add the cooled sweet potatoes, celery, scallions, salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. If using bacon, curry powder or hot sauce. add them here as well. Stir until evenly combined, give it a taste and see if it needs any additional salt or pepper.
