The Last Salad (Before Autumn)

2 small sweet potatoes (chopped or diced)

1 small red onion

1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, divide into two separate 1/4 teaspoons

1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup of honey

2 tablespoons of minced chives

4 cups of Bibb lettuce or baby arugula

3 medium-sized radishes, sliced paper-thin


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss sweet potatoes with red onion, black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a medium bowl. Place on parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and roast until tender (45 minutes average).

While ingredients are baking, whisk together vinegar, honey, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and chives in a medium bowl. Toss together Bibb lettuce or arugula and radish slices in a separate medium-sized bowl. 

Serving Suggestion:

Arrange lettuce or arugula on salad plates. Toss cooled sweet potato & red onion mixture over leaves & serve cool or at room temperature. Garnish with cherry tomatoes if preferred.
