Wrap the individual potatoes in foil. Bake in a pre-heated 400°F oven for 1 hour, until tender. Cool until easy to handle. Peel, then cut into 3/4-inch chunks.
In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise and mustard. Add the yams, celery, red pepper, pineapple, and scallions and toss gently, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerated until chilled, about 1 hour. (The salad can be made 1 day ahead, covered, and refrigerated. Adjust the seasonings before serving.)
Just before serving, fold in the pecans and sprinkle with the chives. Serve chilled.
