Sweet Potato Salad

Method

  • Fill a pot with water and place over high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until slightly softened.
  • Lower the heat to medium-low. Cover pot with lid and cook for 16-20 minutes.
  • Add the red pepper and cover pot again. Steam for 2-4 minutes, until softened.
  • Drain the vegetables and wash with cold water for about 2 minutes, until they are completely cold.
  • Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, mustard, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and cayenne pepper.
  • Transfer ½ of this mixture to a separate bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 30 seconds at 800 watts, until it steams.
  • Drizzle mixture over vegetables. Toss to coat and set aside at room temperature to 15 minutes to allow the vegetables to soak up all of the aromas.
  • Sauté the bacon in a 25 cm pan for 6-8 minutes, over medium heat until crunchy. When ready, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Slowly add the olive oil to the remaining vinegar mixture. Whisk until completely combined.
  • Pour dressing over salad. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill.
  • Season to taste and serve.

Tip

You can store the salad in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
