Sweet Potato Cilantro Lime Bowl
All I can say is this salad is so good!! I was able to get some of the ingredients for it from the farmers market such as cilantro, green onions and bell peppers. It’s kind of my new farmers market salad.
Who would have thought that cilantro and lime were enough to dress a salad. It’s definitely hearty for a salad. The mango and sweet potato gives the salad a variety of tastes. Can I just say I love the versatility of sweet potatoes.
A friend from work had this salad a while back and had me taste it. It was great. I asked for the recipe, but I couldn’t find the one she gave me, so I tried to remember all that was in it. I do remember the distinctive lime and cilantro taste.
If I were to make this again I might add another mango. Oh and if you don’t plan on feeding a lot of people or want leftovers, I suggest halving the salad. The leftovers taste great though!!
Total time: 10 minutes
- 2 cooked sweet potatoes, cut into cubes and skin removed (I bake mine or you can microwave
- 1 mango, cut into chunks
- 2 bell peppers, chopped
- 1-2 avocados, chopped
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 15 ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 c frozen corn, thawed
- 1 bunch green scallions, chopped
- 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
- 2 limes, juiced
Directions: In a large bowl add the sweet potatoes and top with the remaining ingredients. I added the lime and cilantro last. Stir well to combine all salad ingredients. Enjoy with warm sweet potatoes or cold. It’s great leftover.
Just a short post to share a great recipe. Hope you are all enjoying the week.
