Baked sweet potato (salad)

This was a yummy different salad. The sweet potatoes by themselves are good and also good for a snack.

Sweet potatoes
garlic powder
salt and pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice potatoes into wedges. Spray cooking sheet with pam. Place wedges on the sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and garlic powder. Spritz with a bit of olive oil. Cook for ten minutes and then turn them over and cook another ten minutes or until they are as brown as you like them. I didn't want mine too brown for the salad.

Place them on mixed salad greens or romaine lettuce. Sprinkle with a balsamic dressing (I often use balsamic vinegar by itself since I am doing low fat for myself).

Better homes and gardens has a good citrus vinaigrette which uses
1 (1/2 inch) piece fresh ginger , peeled
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp chopped sweet onion
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp orange zest
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
(Pulse the first 7 ingredients in blender or food processor until blended. "With blender running, add olive oil in a slow steady stream"....Pour through a fine wire mesh to discard solids.
