VeganMoFo – Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Instead of the usual sweet potato fries to go with my Monster Burger for Halloween dinner, I made a Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette. This is so yummy and reminds me a little of a salad recipe Bryanna posted during Canadian Thanksgiving. My recipe is certainly very adaptable and would be a great Thanksgiving or Christmas salad as well.



Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Ingredients:
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced
1/2 t. salt, kosher or sea salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1 T. olive oil
3 ounces fresh baby spinach
2 T. chopped purple onion
1 T. chopped green onion
2 T. dried cranberries
¼ cup Apple Cider Vinaigrette (recipe below)

Directions:
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread on baking and sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, toss together the sweet potatoes, spinach, onions, cranberries, and vinaigrette. Serve extra dressing on the side.

Apple Cider Vinaigrette
(inspired by Taste of the South)

Whisk together:
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup apple cider
1 T. apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons agave nectar
1 t. dried thyme
1 t. minced green onion
S&P to taste

========================================

A couple of notes:
I posted some snacks awhile back and mentioned the Cherry Pie Oohmega Bar.


It’s very very good and I can’t wait to try some other flavors.

I really do love Celine’s Pumpkin Bread. I have three huge buns left over. How awesome would it be if you toasted it, then used it for Hannah’s Pumpkin Bread Pudding??!!! If you haven't seen Hannah's recipe, go look now!

I’m so tired from my workout tonight, but 3 more posts and I will have posted EVERY DAY of MoFo! It was nice to see that the ppk blog noted this along with a picture of my Halloween Black Bean Soup, as well as an entrĂ©e from River and cookies from Shellyfish, on Isa’s Halloween Roundup.

I so wanted to start with pumpkin bread to make that pudding, too! I just ran out of time, and then that stale bread came my way... But if I ever got enough time, I'd love to try that idea.

Congrats on both counts--every day posting and the PPK mention! This salad is stunning--just look at those colors! I love pairing the sweet potato with the raw greens and other goodies. Thanksgiving has passed over here, but I think I'll make this anyway! :)

Your salad recipe entices me! I love the addition of cranberries to any dish. Preferably organic and apple juice sweetened.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
