Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet Potatoes are one of those staples that can be made in so many ways.  One of those ways is to add it to your salad.  Warm sweet potatoes give the salad a crunch along with the combo of green apples and pumpkin seeds.  This salad is a great fall dish you can add anytime of the day!  

Note:  Avoid over cooking your sweet potatoes by cooking them at 450 for about 30 to 35 minutes.  Its best to test them by piercing the sweet potato with a fork.
