With just a few simple ingredients, this Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Salad has incredible flavor!
I have the easiest, tastiest salad/side dish for you today. It’s the perfect thing if you’ve been asked to bring a vegetable or salad to your Thanksgiving gathering (or any potluck), but it’s an equally great recipe that works for a meal prep lunch dish or a weeknight dinner side.
You all know how much I love sweet potatoes (From sweet potato pancakes to sweet potato muffins to sweet potato black bean burgers, I use them in a lot of recipes!) and I have to say, this Roasted Sweet Potato Salad is a new favorite. It’s so easy to make with just a few simple ingredients, but the flavors and textures come together so well.
How to Make This Roasted Sweet Potato Salad Recipe
Most of the time this recipe takes is hands off. Once you have your sweet potatoes cubed you’re golden. You just need to roast them in the oven and let them cool. Meanwhile, mix together the dressing ingredients.
Lastly, add the remaining ingredients to the sweet potatoes and then coat everything with the dressing. It’s ready to serve.
It doesn’t get much easier, does it?
You can absolutely make this early in the day to be served later or even the day before. Just toss the ingredients with the dressing just before serving. I like this best served at room temperature.
I am so excited for you to try this one! I hope you and yours love it as much as I do.Print
