Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 18, 2010


I saw this recipe in a Kroger coupon mailer, of all places. And I had to try it.

I *heart* potato salad. And I *heart* sweet potatoes.

And I now can say that I *double heart* roasted sweet potato salad.

Here’s how you make it…

A sweet and delectable side dish for an upcoming meal!

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Adapted from Kroger Coupon Mailer Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 medium-large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced ($1.59) Sale prices coming up next week!
  • About 2-3 Tbsp olive oil ($.20)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ($.05)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg ($.05)
  • 1/2 tsp allspice ($.05)
  • 2 Tbsp honey ($.20)
  • 2 Tbsp brown or spicy mustard ($.10)

Directions

  1. Place the peeled and diced sweet potatoes in a colander and rinse them with water.
  2. Dump them into a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Place them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Roast at 400 for 25-35 minutes, or until all are soft. Roasting time may vary depending on thickness of the sweet potato pieces.  Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, and mayo.  Stir in the basil leaves.  Pour the dressing over top of the sweet potatoes.
  5. Serve warm, or chill for at least 2 hours and serve chilled.

This looks interesting! How did you like it best, warm or chilled? Is it more like a regular potato salad when it’s chilled?

I do love my sweet taters but not real sure about combining them with mayo….I guess I am more of a “sweet” sweet tater fan more than a savory one. The mustard might give it a different kick but not real sure on this one;-

Next week my store will have sweet potatoes on sale for $.59/lb….not a great price but not awful either.

This week sweet potatoes are on sale for $.18/lb at my Walmart. I’ve already bought 5 0r 6 lbs, but I may have to get more for that price. I can see some sweet potato salad in my future!
