This is a great, easy recipe! It comes from Everyday Food. I packed it for my lunch and I'm really impressed by the flavor. Great for a side dish or light meal.

Loved this recipe. I much prefer sweet potatoes savory rather than sweet and this recipe foots that bill. It is both hearty and refreshing. I did use cayenne instead of the hot pepper flakes so that it would evenly coat the potatoes. Also I found that my potatoes were fork tender at 15 minutes and was glad I checked because I did not want them mushy. I chilled the salad for ac couple hours to let the flavors marry and the leftovers were even better the next day. Thank you Reddyrat for sharing the recipe.
