I gotta say I’ve never been a huge fan of out standard American potato salad. Of course, that never stops me from eating it if I’m at a barbecue or potluck, but sometimes I wish there was something a little different. Something that wakes up the taste buds. Something a little special. This White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing is all that and more!
January kind of gets me down. All the celebrations (and food) from Thanksgiving through Christmas and even New Year’s, then that “What have I done feeling” when it’s all over. Then there are the New Year’s Resolutions. And the cold. And even though every day brings another minute or so of light, the dark, dreary winter. But sometimes, there’s an opportunity to inject a little sunshine into your life, and this Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette is just that.
I’m a huge fan of Sun-Dried Tomatoes like these Oven Dried Tomatoes (or Un Sun Tomatoes I hear them called sometimes!) And I’m a fan of Slow Roasted Tomatoes, too. Both have such an intensity and are so easy. But taking those intense tomatoes and make a dressing/vinaigrette like this Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette is a way to get incredible flavor with very little effort!
These Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts are pretty special. Roasted to perfection, they’re gorgeous as is, but you’ll want to take these one step further: Finish them off with a sweet, tart White Balsamic Vinaigrette.
I always make my salad dressings. Oh, I may have an “emergency” bottle in the fridge but I just pretty much ignore it.
