Memorial Day: Mediterranean Style Sweet Potato Salad

This Sweet Potato Salad is both sweet and spicy. It is the perfect side for your Memorial Day BBQ.

2 sweet potatoes (about 1 pound total), peeled and cubed

Olive oil


1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

Pinch ground cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

Salt, to taste

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

3 heaping tablespoons of Hell of a Relish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and toss with olive oil and salt and spread evenly in a 13x9 baking dish. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes, then remove from oven and cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, whisk together the ginger, cumin, paprika, salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Spoon marinade over potatoes and toss gently with tongs to coat. Right before serving add the fresh cilantro and parsley and Hell of a Relish. Serve at room temperature.
