Sweet Potato Salad

SWEET and SPICY! Sweet Potato Salad gets spice from diced fresh jalapeño and sweetness from a simple maple syrup vinaigrette.


  • 3-4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-4 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place sweet potatoes into a large bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Pour the potatoes onto a large baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until tender.
  • Place roasted potatoes in a large bowl and add bacon, jalapeño, and green onions, tossing gently.
  • Whisk together the maple syrup, red wine vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Pour dressing over the warm potatoes and toss gently until coated. Serve warm or cold.
