We really enjoyed this both warm and cold. I added the onion to the potatoes in the oven during the last 15 minutes of roasting to soften it up. Make sure to roast your sweet potatoes until they get some color from caramelization. Read More

I added a red onion that I baked with the sweet potatoes and I brought the dish to a potato-themed pitch-in. It was a big hit. I've been receiving requests for the recipe all week. Read More

We love this salad! I have made it several times and it always turns out well. I don't really measure the veg, just stir it in till it looks pretty and the balance is what I like. I have added roasted corn, feta, slice avocado, or spinach...depending on what I have or what we are having with it. It is a very flexible meal and can be customized to whatever tastes! Thank you for sharing!!! Read More

I used sweet potatoes as the recipe called for. My potatoes were almost white not the orange in the picture. Yams? I also put the cubed potatoes in a bowl and tossed them with the oil and spices. it seemed to coat the potatoes better and distribute the flavors. I used chipotle spiced chili powder instead of red pepper flakes Also it tasted better a few hours after completing or even the next day. Read More

Didn t tell the family it had that Vegan label and made it. It was relatively easy to make and everyone loved it! I put the red onion in with the sweet potatoes about half way through cooking and softened them a bit good idea. Otherwise the recipe is great just as it is. In fact everyone asked if we could make it again so they could take it to lunch! Don t be scared by the title this really is delicious. Singed -from a Meat-eating person! Read More
