As the name says, a straightforward salad with a light citrus dressing. A nice accompaniment to grilled entrees.

Loved it! I peeled and cubed the raw sweet potatoes, tossed with 2 tablespoons olive oil and some salt, pepper and chili powder. Roasted at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes, cooled to room temperature and then added to the dressing mixture. I will be making this frequently...thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Rinse and dry the sweet potatoes. Wrap each with foil and bake until tender when pierced with a knife, about 40 to 60 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and cut them into bite-size pieces and transfer to a large bowl. Add green onions and celery. Set aside.
  4. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large measuring cup. Whisk well.
  5. Pour over the potato mixture and stir gently to coat, but avoid breaking up the potatoes.
  6. If you like cilantro (I love it), add in a generous amount of leaves for color, aroma and flavor.
  7. Serve at once, or refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
