In a large saucepan, simmer sweet potatoes in salted water over medium heat for approx. 10 to 12 min. or until just cooked through. Drain and cool.
Meanwhile, whisk together vinegar, lime juice, cilantro paste, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk in olive oil and set aside.
Just before serving, gently mix the potatoes into dressing, along with red pepper. Adjust seasoning, if necessary and garnish with raisins, green onion and chopped peanuts.
