  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced

Jalapeño Lime Vinaigrette


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Toss cubed sweet potatoes with 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika and 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Spread onto a rimmed baking sheet. Place into heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
