Roasted Vegetable Salad

Sweet potato is no potato and nowhere close to a yam, but a veggie with its own identity. Historians and scientists believe that sweet potatoes were domesticated over 5000 years before, and Christopher Columbus carried them out of Spain into the ‘New World’. Sweet potatoes play quite the stellar role in religious festivities including Thanksgiving Day.

Our scrumptious salad calls for the versatile sweet potato to be roasted with carrots and bell peppers and tossed in a creamy Sriracha-infused yogurt sauce. Topped off with orange wedges, juicy cherry-tomatoes, crunchy lettuce and olives, this savory sweet-potato salad tastes even more delicious than it looks!
