Sweet Potato Yumminess
Some of you may know that I have a very particular palate. I am picky, picky, picky. I am always critical of colors, textures and I certainly don't like trying new flavors. If a food is strange or funky looking I usually pass right by it. The crazy thing is that I know that I am missing out on a multitude of flavors and I don't really care. Isn't that terrible?!?!? Pour example, my Dad is always buying new fruits (persimmons, cheramoya, cactus pears) for us to try and I usually pass it right up. They just look to weird (mature huh?). Anyway, when a friend of mine posted a Roasted Sweet Potato Salad on her blog, I passed it right up. Cilantro, black beans, peppers and sweet potatoes - no way! My sister on the other hand decided to try it and after I was guaranteed that I would like it, I tried it. Surprise, surprise, the salad is incredible. It has a mix of flavors that make your mouth sing. So, if you are looking for a new Thanksgiving recipe, try this one and wow your guests. You will not regret it!!
