How To Make Sweet Potato Salad

  1. The first thing you do is line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Next wash, peel, and cut up three large sweet potatoes. 
  3. Salt, pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake the sweet potatoes until you can fork them (you don’t want them overly soft). Baking time is about 30 minutes.

Cilantro Lime Green Onion
While the sweet potatoes are baking begin washing and cutting up the vegetables. Cut up a lime, and chop the green onion and cilantro. For prepping vegetables; I put them in my Pyrex storage bowls that come with lids until needed. I left some cilantro un-chopped for garnishing.

I used a rounded 1/4 tsp. Paprika, a couple of dashes of dried red pepper flakes, and a can of cubed pineapple with 1/4 cup of the juice. Reserve the leftover pineapple juice to adjust the recipe as needed. Next, I squeezed a quarter of a lime juice into the bowl over the tops of the sweet potatoes. Stir together gently.

    1. Hi Joanna, The original recipe called for Mango and was slightly different. But, I love that you can access pineapple year round. I used canned but, in summer you could cut up fresh. We really enjoyed this salad. Hope you try it & like it.
