Super Sweet Potato Salad

"I use canola oil in this recipe because its mild flavor doesn't over power the delicate sweetness of the dressing. Plus, it adds a boost of good nutrition and omega-3 fat!"

Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered 3
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, cut into cubes 1
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries 125 mL
  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped 60 mL

Directions

Preparation

1 Place sweet potatoes in large saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Cover saucepan and bring water to a boil. Reduce heat and cook, at a low boil until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, transfer to large bowl and allow to cool, 5 to 10 minutes.
2 While sweet potatoes are cooling, make dressing by whisking together vinegar, orange juice, maple syrup, mustard, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Slowly whisk in canola oil until well blended. Set aside.
3 To assemble salad, add apple, cranberries, and pecans to sweet potatoes. Drizzle dressing over sweet potato mixture and toss gently. Serve warm or chilled.
