  Simple and easy!

Yes, this is a simple, easy, not your everyday ordinary salad.

The out of ordinary in the salad is Asian sweet potato, yummy roasted Asian sweet potato. There are many varieties of sweet potatoes, with skin colors from white, yellow, red, purple and brown, and the flesh range from white, orange, reddish-orange and yellow. Sweet potatoes are classified as either soft or firm and this Asian sweet potato is firm, which makes it perfect for tossing in salads. I tossed with seasoning and light olive oil and roasted in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  I like crispy potatoes so I roasted just a bit longer.

It could not be easier, I just tossed the potatoes on a bed of greens, sprinkled on a few sliced almonds and drizzled with balsamic glaze. I had to make myself a second salad, cause the first one just wasn’t big enough.  Smooth creamy potato, crisp salad greens and sweet and tart glaze, oh so good, you have got to give this one a try.
