From the kitchen of WGNV operations director, Karen Bencke Sometimes you need a good recipe to celebrate the holiday and sometimes the holiday brings a great new recipe to you! Karen made this salad on Fathers’ Day and says it was wonderful! She admits that it sounds weird, but assures it is very tasty… “You’ll have to trust me on this one”. 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed, ¾ inch squares Toss with 1 Tblsp. olive oil. Spread in a single layer, cover, and microwave until tender. Cool completely. (I used a 9x13 pyrex dish and turned off the turntable)

Terri's Notes

Karen says “I didn’t make a dressing I just tossed everything together. Sweet potatoes mush very easily, so toss everything else first and add sweet potatoes at the very end. Delicious served cold or I prefer room temperature”
