Today’s delicious recipe comes from The Paleo Cookbook from Rockridge Press. It’s a tome of 300 recipes and it’s by far the most in-depth cookbook I think I’ve ever seen. I made the recipe as written on Monday and it really does make 4-6 big servings!
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
5 or so strips of good bacon, cooked and broken up
4 TBSP olive oil
4 TBSP good mayonnaise
2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1 TBSP chopped chives
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
A couple grinds of black pepper
1 tart apple, chopped
(3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped) <- I didn’t include hard-boiled eggs because I think they’re gross
1. Put cubed sweet potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover them and bring them to a boil over medium heat. Cook until tender, but not quite as long as if you were going to mash them.
2. In a small bowl, combine oil, mayo, lemon juice, chives, and mustard to create the dressing. Add pepper to taste.
3. Once potatoes are done, drain them and let them cool a bit. Then put them in a large bowl with the bacon, apple, and eggs (if you like that type of thing) and top with the dressing. Mix well and enjoy warm or cold!
