Sweet Potato Waldorf Salad
The addition of the sweet potato and toasted pine nuts makes this simple salad an exceptional side dish or a hearty lunch. Because the natural flavors blend so well, there’s little need for exotic seasonings. A basket of whole grain bread makes the ideal accompaniment.

Serves: 2 to 3
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
- 1 sweet red apple, diced
- 1 ripe pear, diced
- 1 celery stalk, shopped
- 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 2 to 3 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Steam the sweet potato for 7 to 8 minutes, until soft. Remove from the steamer and cool. Cut into bite-size pieces and put in a medium bowl.
Add the apple, pear, celery, pine nuts, and mayonnaise, and toss well to distribute the mayonnaise evenly. Garnish with the chives and serve.
