As I have mentioned numerous times, I LOVE sweet potatoes....even on salads!!
I made a Roaseted Sweet Potato wrap (recipe to come next week) and had some left over roasted sweet potatoes and onions (mmmm).
This salad is a complete meal for one (or a side salad for 2). I love the Morning Star Chipotle Black Bean burger, but any variety would work.
1 large plate of spinach
1/2 a bell pepper, chopped (an orange one is pictured here)
1 small tomato, chopped
1 black bean burger, warmed and chopped into pieces
1/2 roasted sweet potatoes and onions, warm or cold
1 TBS Creamy Cilantro Dressing
Simply combine the ingredients and enjoy!

Creamy Cilantro Dressing
This recipe is NOT a Nutrient DENSE dressing...
...it's just NOT AS bad for you as other dressings out there.
1 cup Vegan Mayo ( I prefer Veganise)
1 cup sour cream (vegan or non-vegan if you choose)
1 small bunch of cilantro
2 medium sized tomatillos
1 jalapeno, seeds removed
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 lime (sometimes I use 1 1/2 limes depending on the taste)
1/2 tsp salt
1 Hidden Valley Ranch packet (optional- definitely makes the dressing more flavorful)
Place all ingredients in a HIGH POWERED blender and blend until smooth.
Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (possibly longer)
