Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Mixed Green Salad

This is a very simple, yet elegant salad that you could enjoy mid-week or serve to guests for a lunch.  It has a nice combination of flavors with the sweet of the potato and sour from the balsamic vinegar.


2 large Sweet Potatoes or Yams cut into one inch pieces

4-5 cloves of garlic chopped fine

2-3 tblsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cracked pepper

Handful of baby mixed greens and baby spinach leaves

2-3 tblsp balsamic dressing – either bottled or homemade

1/4 cup of roasted pine nuts – optional


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl and add garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Toss until well combined.  Add sweet potatoes to baking sheet and spread evenly.  

Roast for 40-45 min turning after 20 minutes of roasting.

Meanwhile, prepare salad green by washing and drying in a colander.

When sweet potatoes are finished, let cool for about 5-10 minutes.  

Toss salad with balsamic dressing.  Place salad in bowls and add 1/2 cup of sweet potatoes right on top.

Sprinkle with pine nuts if you’d like.
