Sweet potato salad is delicious, flavorful, and colorful! It’s loaded with arugula, walnuts, sweet potato, and feta cheese in a savory honey mustard dressing. Perfect for spring picnics, lunch, or as a side dish.

Preparation and Cooking Time

3 tablespoons Honey Mustard Dressing

Step 3

Recipe Notes

1. I recommend that you use baby arugula for this recipe instead of mature arugula sold in bunches which is a lot spicy. You can replace the baby arugula with baby spinach if that is what you have.

2. To store, refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
