2poundssweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (2-3 large)
2tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
2tablespoonsfreshly squeezed lime juice
1/4teaspoonhot pepper sauce
1/2largered bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2cupthinly sliced green onions
1/4cupchopped fresh cilantro
Salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Set the pot over medium high heat and bring to a boil, then cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and then let them cool completely.
While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the cumin, salt, oil, lime juice and hot pepper sauce.
In a large bowl, combine the cooled sweet potatoes, red bell pepper, green onions, and cilantro.
Add the dressing and gently toss everything together until well blended.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss again gently.
Next time I will roast the sweet potatoes instead of boiling them. And I'll add a little honey (1-2 teaspoons) honey to the dressing.Serving size: about 1/2 cup4*SmartPoints (Green plan)4*SmartPoints (Blue plan)1*SmartPoints (Purple plan)3*PointsPlus (Old plan)
