Gingered Sweet Potato-Apple Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Like potato salad? Sweet, colorful and rich in beta-carotene (forms vitamin A), sweet potatoes take center stage in this easy version. With “canned food” convenience, this tasty side dish provides nearly 1 1/2 cups offruit and vegetables per serving with little effort, yet lots of flavor!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 can (15 ounces) sweet potatoes or yams, in light syrup, drained and cubed
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple tidbits, in juice, drained
1 medium apple, cored and diced
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped unsalted cashews
1/4 cup honey mustard dressing
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
6 cups mixed salad greens
Combine sweet potatoes, pineapple, apple, celery and cashews in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine honey mustard dressing and ginger; pour over sweet potato mixture; toss lightly. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve over salad greens.
