Just thought I would share a perfect summer salad. I thought I invented it but alas, found similar recipes on the internet. Mine was simpler and only had these ingredients:
- Roasted sweet potatoes — so easy to make, I just drizzle with olive oil and wrap in foil, then bake at 375 (?) for about 40 minutes or until tender.
- Salad — I used a mixed bag of organic greens
- Black pepper
- Olive oil
Here’s the genesis of the recipe: My youngest suddenly decided that he hated sweet potatoes, after I had already roasted a large batch. I sliced a few and ate them with a drizzle of olive oil and salt. Then I decide to get more creative. I sliced the rest of the potatoes and added it to the salad, crumbling feta on top. For the dressing, I simply used extra virgin olive oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper. I had a feeling the salty feta would complement the sweetness of the potatoes and I was so right. Kid — you don’t know what you’re missing!
