Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

July 23, 2013

Author Notes: This is a very portable salad that is great room temperature (or even a bit warmed in the sun) and it doesn't use mayo or anything that might go bad if left out of a refrigerator. It's a hit every time I make it, and can be made a few days ahead of time. This salad is also vegan if you leave out the feta cheese!RellaBellaK
