SWEET POTATO SALAD WITH WARM BACON DRESSING

Serves 8

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400.

Prepare a baking sheet with fat-free cooking spray; spread the sweet potatoes on the sheet. Bake for roughly 25 minutes or until the potatoes can be easily cut through with a spoon. Keep warm.

Heat pan over high heat. Add bacon and cook until just crisp. Remove bacon to a towel-lined plate. Pour off all but a tiny trace of the fat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Remove pan from heat, add vinegar, olive oil, sugar and reserved bacon. Place the potatoes in a large bowl, pour the dressing over and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the green onions and parsley. Serve at room temperature.

Enjoy!
