Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

One day I was looking in some food magazines while waiting for my daughter to finish her ballet lesson. I came across this sweet potato salad which drew my attention. It is an easy recipe made with sweet potatoes instead of regular ones. Loved the idea as caramelized roasted sweet potatoes are so flavorful. Combined with herb dressing, nuts and feta makes a perfect light summer salad.

 

I gave this recipe a try and we all loved it so I decided to share it with you. Making the salad with sweet potatoes made it a unique, elegant dish. A combination of sweet, salty, crunchy bring all together a healthy delicious salad that can be served as it is as a light meal or as a side dish.

 

So if you are searching for a different way to create a potato salad this is a delicious way to do it.
