Sweet Potato and Feta Salad

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:

  1. 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. 
  2. Feta
  3. Salad — I used a mixed bag of organic greens
  4. Black pepper
  5. Olive oil
  6. Salt

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!
