Next, the salad. Roast up some diced sweet potatoes tossed in your favorite seasoning. I used smoked paprika (yummy), but chili powder, cayenne pepper, or cumin are all excellent spice options. Add some salt, pepper and olive oil to the mix and roast those potatoes until pretty soft. Also, make sure to remove the potato skins with a vegetable peeler before you cook them.

To complete the salad, just toss in 1 cup of white beans (or any other canned bean you have in the cupboard).

Toss them together and drizzle on your delicious green sauce and there you go!
