Why is it that our taste in food changes as we get older? When I was a kid, I did NOT like sweet potatoes. Even though the name alone suggests that these orange hued vegetables are packed with "sweet" goodness, I found them utterly repulsive as a child. Both of my kids were equally opposed to sweet potatoes until fairly recently. My seventeen year old son is just starting to come around on his opinion of them and I've even caught him choosing a sweet potato over a white potato recently. (Proof that he is growing up way too fast.)
I love roasted sweet potatoes and this sweet potato salad is a one of my favorite ways to eat them.
Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
4 large sweet potatoes 2 Tablespoons rosemary
2 Tablespoons oil ½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup honey ½ teaspoon pepper
3 Tablespoons white wine vinegar 2 cloves garlic
Coat a roasting pan with pam. Cube potatoes and toss with 1 T. oil.
Transfer warm potatoes to a serving bowl and add dressing. Toss gently.
I used to make this sweet potato salad every year for Thanksgiving. One day it occurred to me that it was way to good to eat only once a year so I started to make it more often. I like to eat this warm but it's equally good cold out of the frig and even at room temperature.
