Sweet potato salad is a unique healthy diversion from a regular salad. The hardest part? Roasting the sweet potatoes! Then throw it together!

How to Make Sweet Potato Salad

The most ‘difficult’ part of this recipe? Roasting the sweet potatoes. 

You can roast the potatoes ahead of time, refrigerate, then make the salad another day. Keep these roasted sweet potato bites in your refrigerator for so many other things! 

Sweet Potato Salad

There’s no mayo in this potato salad. It’s a Mediterranean version of a salad with your best extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice. 

Sweet Potatoes in Salad

Sweet potatoes in salads are a healthy different diversion. 

The health benefits of sweet potatoes are indisputed. High in fiber and antioxidants, sweet potatoes help your body from free radical damage. 

They’re also great for a healthy gut and brain. Putting the roasted sweet potatoes in your salad gives you an incredibly rich source of beta carotene, which converts to vitamin A supporting your good vision and immune system. 

Roasted Sweet Potato for Salad

These sweet potatoes are roasted in the oven with delicious spices adding to the flavor profile of this salad. 

Hints of cardamom and all spice come together with a hint of maple syrup and then the crunch of all the other vegetables you’re putting in your salad! 

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Feta

While I didn’t add feta cheese to my salad, you could certainly do so. Another great crumbled cheese to use would be goat cheese. And, if you’re a blue cheese lover, or gorgonzola, you can have a bite of tang with the salad!
