Sweet-Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette
|This photo really doesn't do this salad justice. but it is the one that I had.|
2 ½ pounds sweet potatoes
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 Tbs + 1tsp white wine vinegar
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup olive oil
4 scallions (green onions) thinly sliced
Peel potatoes, and cube into 1“ hunks/cubes. Steam potatoes in a steamer over boiling water, covered until just tender. This only takes 10-12 minutes, watch them because they can go from not quite there to too far quick. *
While the potatoes steam, whisk together mustard, vinegar and salt in a large bowl, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified.
Add hot potatoes and scallions to dressing and gently toss to combine well. Cool to room temperature, if needed add salt to taste.
* Here I amaze myself. I didn’t (but now I do) own a traditional steamer. Instead for years I have used a bamboo one over my wok.
