Chipotle Lime Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

One of my favorite ways to meal prep is to roast veggies. I love to make tons and then use them for salads, quinoa bowls, and even pasta dishes. Typically, I post a salad a day on Instagram and Facebook, so if you are a salad fan, then follow me there. This particular salad is so tasty that I had to post it here. Plus, it goes along with my recent Chipotle Lime Rub / Wildtree series. My other salads using this Chipotle Lime Rub are here: Chipotle Lime Chickpea Salad and Southwestern Chopped Ranch Salad.

Tips: (1) Makes 2 large salads or several side-salads. (2) In order to get sweet potatoes roasted and caramelized, don’t use too much oil and roast them in a hot oven! (3) You can buy the Wildtree Chipotle Lime Rub and the Sweet Onion Dressing here.

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle Lime Rub
  • 5 oz lettuce (I used a Baby Spinach and Baby Butter Lettuce Blend by Earthbound Farm)
  • 1/2 cup edamame, shelled and steamed
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup corn, steamed
  • 1 avocado
  • ~4 tablespoons Wildtree Sweet Onion Dressing


Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425.
  2. Peel and cut sweet potato into chunks; I made 1.5cm” thick slices.
  3. Place sweet potatoes in a bowl, drizzle over olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and Chipotle Lime Rub, toss well to coat, and pour onto a baking tray or cookie sheet.
  4. Roast them for 10 minutes, then flip them and roast them for another 15 minutes or until golden.
  5. While they are roasting, cook the frozen corn, or edamame. Boil water and add frozen corn and edamame to a steam basket, and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  6. Slice tomatoes.
  7. When sweet potatoes are ready, combine ingredients into a large salad bowl, add Wildtree Sweet Onion Dressing, and serve.

Southwestern Chopped Ranch Salad (Vegan)

This summer I discovered Just.Ranch – it’s a fabulous vegan ranch dressing. I’ve been indulging in it a lot! I love combining ranch with flavors that you wouldn’t expect!

Recently I’ve been trying to meal prep by roasting vegetables ahead of time for salads, bowls, and pasta. This week I marinated 18 ounces of chopped butternut squash in agave syrup, olive oil, and Chipotle Lime Rub by Wildtree. You can buy it here. I’ve been using this rub in soups, on tacos, and even veggies. This salad has so many of my favorite flavors! I’m going to use the rest of the quinoa and chipotle lime butternut squash for some other dishes this week.
