Course Salad, Side Dish
2Tbs.plus 1 Tbs. Olive Oil
Sea Salt and freshly ground Pepper
Smallhandful of finely chopped Cilantro
Preheat the oven at 425° F.
Rinse & scrub the sweet potatoes well and pat dry. Cut into 1 1/2” cubes and place in a bowl. Add the 2 Tbs. olive oil and a generous dash of salt & pepper and toss until well-coated. Spread the sweet potatoes onto a foil-lined cookie sheet and roast for about 15 minutes or until tender.
While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the dressing by combining the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice, honey, rice vinegar, and cilantro, and whisk together well. Set aside.
Peel & cut the mango into 1” cubes, and if you’re using frozen, whole edamame, thaw & shell it so you have the individual beans at your disposal.
When the potatoes are done roasting, allow them to cool for a few minutes. Combine the potatoes, mango, and edamame in a large bowl. Drizzle the dressing on top & toss lightly.
Serve on a bed of greens or on its own, and enjoy!
