You can find this recipe for Smoky Sweet Potato Salad with Black Beans on Dreena Burton.

Packed with whole plant foods, herbs, and spices, this sweet potato salad is delicious, filling, and full of colour.

Serve the salad over a whole grain, with tortilla chips or wraps, or along-side leafy greens to complete this meal nicely. Trying out “salad boats” is highly recommended!

Use fresh herbs if you can. They add in a fresh aroma, flavour, and colour that really makes this dish that much more enjoyable.

What you’ll need:

  • sweet potatoes
  • black beans*
  • bell pepper
  • cucumber
  • fresh lime juice
  • herbs: cilantro/flat-leaf parsley, oregano, chives
  • spices: cumin, black pepper, allspice, paprika
  • (optional) sea salt, maple syrup, chipotle hot sauce

*Note: Check out Rancho Gordo for a great selection of Heirloom beans.

Skip the added salt to keep this salad low in salt. Don’t worry, it still tastes great!

SOS-free (salt, oil, sugar-free) option: Additionally, you can leave out the Tabasco sauce and sweetener for an SOS-free version, as well as making sure to use salt-free beans. Again, thanks to the whole plant foods and fresh herbs, this recipe still has plenty of flavour.
