Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

I’ve never been a fan of traditional potato salad. Mushy, mayo-ey, too monotone white carby, and just not my thing.

But this sweet potato salad puts ‘potato salad’ in a whole new light.

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad - Goodbye mayo-loaded, mushy, boring potato salad. Hello to a Mexican-inspired potato salad full of flavor and texture with corn, black beans, peppers, and cilantro!! (Great for outdoor events and lunchboxes because there's no mayo!)

I love sweet potatoes and there’s so many other goodies in this fast and easy recipe with Mexican-inspired flavors.

There’s texture and crunch from red peppers and green onions, black beans add heartiness, corn adds sweetness and juiciness, and there’s the fresh pop of cilantro. Feel free to work in avocado, red onion, or other favorites. You can use it as a filling for enchiladas, tacos, or wraps.

Everything is tossed with a honey and dijon mustard sauce that’s sweet, tangy, and bright with a little bit of a kick from the cayenne I used, but it’s optional. It’s naturally gluten-free and use agave rather than honey to keep it vegan.
