Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons salt and the red potatoes. Return to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until just tender, about 7 minutes. Remove potatoes using a slotted spoon. Return water to a boil. Add sweet potatoes, and simmer until just tender, 4 to 7 minutes. Drain. Gently toss red and sweet potatoes with oil and rosemary; season with salt and pepper.
