Around this time last year I developed a fondness for the white sweet potato. The typical orange-fleshed sweet potatoes, or yams, are okay; and while I’ve come around on them somewhat, I still find the sweetness of this latter type cloying.

Recently we’ve been enjoying letting those white sweets shine in this Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Pistou. I don’t do well with super low-carb, and so a serving of this is just perfect at dinner with some greens and a protein.
Get making some of that delish Pistou so you too can nom on this fab side dish.
