For a twist on regular roasted sweet potatoes, try serving them cold in this flavorful salad.

Sweet Potatoes:
2 1/2 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1” cubes
2 T olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

1 T Dijon mustard
4 tsp white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup blended oil or olive oil, divided
4 scallions, thinly sliced

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Lay the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a tray. Drizzle the oil, salt and pepper over the potatoes. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes in oven or until tender. Remove from oven and let cool.
3. Meanwhile, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and salt in a large bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
4. Once potatoes are cooled, toss in dressing. Garnish with scallions. Serve at room temperature, or chilled.
