Sweet potatoes and black beans make a power-packed salad for any season! Topped with a vinaigrette, this sweet potato salad makes your taste buds dance!



For the salad:

3 medium sweet potatoes  (peeled, diced small Рappx 6 cups)

1 poblano pepper (seeded, chopped)

1/2 cup red onion (diced)

2 tablespoons olive oil

one 15oz can black beans (drained, rinsed)

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (chopped)

1 avocado (peeled, diced)

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (toasted)

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (arils)

For the Vinaigrette:

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (3 limes)

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon cumin


Preheat oven to 375F.

Toss the red onion, sweet potatoes, and poblano in the olive oil.

Spread on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Roast the sweet potato, red onion, and poblano pepper in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes or until fork tender.

Remove from oven to cool, about 15 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooling, make your vinaigrette.

In a separate bowl, mix together the lime juice, honey, olive oil, cumin, salt, and pepper.

Stir to combine.

Reserve for later.

After the potatoes, onion, and poblano have cooled, add them to a large bowl and add black beans, avocado, cilantro, pomegranate seeds, cilantro, and pumpkin seeds.

Toss to combine but be careful since the potatoes are soft.

Pour over the vinaigrette and toss lightly to coat.
