Sweet Potato Salad



Happy New Year to all my readers, friends and family.



We the Gourmet Seven are back after a small gap. For this month, the theme was picnic food from BBC Good Food. I chose this simple salad. It turned out to be a delicious and filling meal. Both my kids loved it. I too liked its sweet and tangy flavors. I made a few changes to the original recipe. I replaced the vinegar with lemon juice and did away with Chives since I couldn’t find them.



What you'll need
  1. Sweet Potato – 2 Medium, cubed into big chunks
  2. Salt to taste
  3. Oil for greasing
  4. For the dressing
  5. Onion – 1 small, finely chopped
  6. Green onions – 2 or 3, finely chopped
  7. Lemon Juice – 1 tbsp
  8. Honey – 2 tbsp
  9. Black Pepper Powder – ¼ tsp
  10. Salt to taste

Method
  1. Heat oven to 180C. Toss the sweet potato chunks with oil and salt. Spread it on a lined, greased baking tray.
  2. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or till golden and done. Mix once, in between.
  3. Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing.
  4. Toss it in with the baked sweet potatoes, with your hands to avoid breaking the pieces.



That’s it a yummy salad is ready.
