This sweet potato salad (or rather simply dressed roasted sweet potatoes, if you insist on getting technical with me) is exceptionally easy to make. It is also wonderful warm, at room temperature, or cold. If you?re looking for a different way to titillate the tastebuds with tubers, why not put away the brown sugar and butter (just temporarily! Just once!) and try this out instead?

Recipe Ingredients for Cuban Sweet Potato Salad

5 large
134 grams
20 grams
1 clove garlic
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Cuban Sweet Potato Salad

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F

  2. Peel the sweet potatoes

  3. Slice the sweet potatoes into chunks that are as evenly sized as you can make them. Aim for about 3/4 inch thick and slightly longer at the ends where the potatoes taper down.

  4. spray the baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  5. Pop this into the oven! After 15 minutes flip each piece over so that it cooks evenly and gets a bit of a crisp crust on both sides. The potatoes will take 25 - 45 minutes to cook depending on the size of your chunks, so fork test them after about 25 minutes to see if they?re tender.

  6. While those are roasting away, squeeze the juice of two limes into a small mixing bowl.

  7. Zest or press in the clove of garlic.

  8. Wash and dry the cilantro sprigs.

  9. Finely chop the cilantro.

  10. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a bowl, and that?s it!

  11. When the sweet potatoes come out of the oven you can let them cool for a minute or two and them toss them with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
