Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Ya know what isn't fair? Having your favorite foods taken away, and others eating it in front of you. Well, in my opinion, there is no better payback then to make them jealous. I know it isn't the mature approach... but I don't care.
Hehehe, I did good too...this hypo-friendly potato salad was waaaaaay better than the store bought stuff the husband found. In fact, it left me wondering why I hadn't made my own potato salad in the past. *shrug*  From here on out this is the only potato salad I want.

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons Italian dressing
1.5 tablespoons spicy mustard
2 tablespoons fat free mayo
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tablespoon relish
1 stalk of celery, diced
2 tablespoons onion, diced
Peel and dice sweet potatoes. Toss with the Italian dressing. Place them in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast at 400 degrees for 25-35 minutes, or until they are soft. Remove from oven and let cool. In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together. Add in the cooled sweet potatoes. If you are patient you can let it chill, but I devoured half of mine on the spot. It was delicious and I do not  regret my eagerness.

This isn't something I will eat every day because the 2 serving portion costs about 290 calories according to my calculations. That said, it was completely delicious and removed any lingering jealousy of the classic white potato salad. And let's be honest here, I'm sure making this probably saved me from binge eating a tub of store bought potato salad in my car over lunch. Don't judge... we've all had those zombie like cravings.

Anyway, have you made any food out of jealousy? What was it and did it satisfy the craving?


  1. I still can't believe our first party had over 300 links. I have a special give away planned for linkers this week.

    Thanks again for coming and for grabbing my button. Let me know if you you have a button and I will post it on my blog too.

    This looks really good. I wish my husband liked sweet potatoes so I would make them more.
    Your hypo blog buddy

  2. It was an amazing first party! Thanks again for hosting it. I finally got my button posted, and I'd love for you to grab it.
    Once upon a time I hated sweet potatoes but now they've become one of my favorite foods. My family still prefers regular potatoes, which is great because then I don't have to share my delicious food. I'm sure someday they'll come around, but I'm in no hurry for that. :)

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I will be featuring you on Friday morning in my feature post for the linky party. Check it out and grab a featured button if you like. I'll grab your button too!
