This is also delicious served on top of a green salad, especially with other roasted and chilled vegetables. A restaurant in Cocoa, Florida, (Osorios) serves something very similar called Katie’s Salad!



4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 2 ½ lbs)

1 Tbl olive oil


Dressing 1:

1 Tbl olive oil

¼ cup honey

3 Tbl white wine vinegar

2 Tbl chopped fresh rosemary

½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

2 garlic cloves

rosemary sprigs, for garnish


Dressing 2:

2 Tbl fresh orange juice

1Tbl olive oil

1 Tbl minced fresh ginger

2 tsp Dijon mustard

3 scallions, finely sliced



Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray; toss together the potatoes and one Tbl oil in the pan. Bake, uncovered, at 450 for 35-45 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes. Whisk together desired dressing. Transfer warm potatoes to a large serving bowl; add dressing and toss gently. Cool. Garnish.
