Sweet Potato Salad Recipe

sweet potato salad I have fallen in love with a new dish: it’s a sweet potato salad recipe!

When I first saw the recipe, I honestly didn’t think that I’d love it, but I do!  I’m not one to actually crave a salad, but this one I do crave.

The best thing: like the other favorite recipes I post, it’s very simple.

What You will Need:

Mixed greens (I use a package of mixed greens and add more spinach)

Sweet potatoes (I used 2 large sweet potatoes in this recipe)

1 vidalia or red onion

Feta cheese

Olive oil

Dijon mustard


Red wine vinegar

Salt and pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Peel and cut sweet potatoes.

6.  While potatoes are roasting, put ingredients (1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons honey, 3/4 cup olive oil, 2 tsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper) in a blender or food processor (I put it in my Vita-mix!) and blend thoroughly.

We ate a piece of baked chicken along with this delicious sweet potato salad, and it was perfect.

Also, as my husband pointed out, the roasted sweet potatoes would be marvelous by themselves (although I’d still probably sprinkle a little feta cheese on mine)!

    We had spinach strawberry salad last night (we LOVE it!!). I still have some leftover spinach, and I happen to have a couple of sweet potatoes too. This would be a good day to make a meal completely from ingredients I have on hand. I also have a pork tenderloin thawing….sounds like a meal!! Thanks christen!!
