Foodist Approved: Sweet Potato Salad Recipe

Sweet Potato Succotash

Sweet Potato Succotash

With Spring right around the corner it’s time to bring back nourishing salads. And I’m not talking about uninspiring limp lettuce salads, but hearty, satisfying bowls of color. This creamy sweet potato salad stands on its own as a complete meal or pairs harmoniously with juicy burgers.

In our household we love to create side dishes whose leftovers can be transformed into work lunches. If you’re working 9-to-5, you need serious mid-day fuel to prevent that late afternoon slump (we all know that dreadful crash that leads to junk food snack attacks).

Thanks to the power combination of sweet potatoes, edamame, corn, and pepitas all tossed together in a rich yogurt-based dressing this salad will sustain you throughout the afternoon.

Yield: serves 6

Ingredients
  • 2 large (1.5 pounds) orange-fleshed sweet potatoes (yams), peeled, quartered
  • 1 cup frozen, shelled edamame
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (or parsley)
  • 1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Preparation

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and simmer until fork tender (but not mushy), about 20 minutes. In the last 3 to 4 minutes add the edamame and corn. Drain and set aside to cool.

In a large salad bowl whisk together the yogurt, oil, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add the red pepper, shallot, cilantro or parsley, and pumpkin seeds.

Allow the sweet potatoes to cool then chop into 1/2-inch cubes and add to the bowl along with the edamame and corn. Toss until well combined.

Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve at room temperature or chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
