Sweet potatoes and beets are what makes this salad awesome!! And then there is the edamame and any extras you want to add like onion, carrots or peppers! Oh and then there is the delicious dressing!!

What you will need:

2 cups peeled cut boiled sweet potatoes (boil for about 8 to 10 min) about 4 small potatoes

1 cup chopped beets (I used canned)

1 cup edamame beans (I bought a bag from Target then steamed them-in the frozen section)

1 cup total of assorted other raw veggies-diced onions/peppers/carrots etc.

Dressing:

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

2 tsp grapeseed oil or oil of your choice

3 tsp water

freshly squeezed the juice of 1/2 small lemon

2 tsp plain non fat Greek yogurt

1 tsp mustard

dash garlic powder

dash cayenne pepper if you want to add heat

dash of honey too if you like

whisk all together and pour over salad then take about 1 cup of mixture and top over mixed greens or eat on its own.

Makes approx. 4 servings

I prepped this on Sunday evening along with cut up fruit and veggies for my bean dip and Greek yogurt bowls. I have been having a great week so far!
