Watercress Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Recipe photo courtesy of José Manuel Picayo Rivera

Roasting chunks of sweet potatoes caramelizes them -- they're great to eat all on their own or tossed with crunchy nuts, tangy cheese, and crisp watercress.

    This is one of my favorite salads ever. And I love salads. Any green works, I usually do arugula. The flavor combination is amazing!

    I make this all the time - it is a favorite on vegetarian night and is my regular Thanksgiving salad. I also substitute arugula for the watercress and I use pecans and leave out the cayenne pepper.

    Such a great recipe! I usually like something more substantial for an entree than a salad, but we have this for dinner all the time! It's surprisingly hearty and filling. I usually cant find watercress so I make this with spinach. It's fantastic! Great mix of flavors and textures. Yum.
