It’s week 2 of Meatless Mondays! Below, I’ve included my ultimate favorite recipe from the Planet Organic Market- Sweet Potato Salad! This amazingly delicious salad is the perfect dish to bring along to a spring or summer picnic (in the hopes that this rain will ever stop!) Sweet potatoes are loaded with fiber and full of vitamin C, A and B6! I hope you enjoy this delicious healthy recipe as much as I do!
8 cups sweet potatoes (yams), peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup mayonnaise or vegenaise (vegan mayo)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans, unsalted and chopped
3/4 tsp ginger, ground
1/2 cup celery, 1/4 inch diced
1/2 cup red onions, diced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp lemon juice
Steam potatoes until fork tender (about 20-30minutes) then cool.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and toss gently with cooled, cooked potatoes. Chill in refrigerator before serving.
