Sweet Potatoes really are a superfood. They are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
This is a really easy salad with very few ingredients. It is an excellent meal for breakfast or a sweet mid-day snack. I added roasted flaxseeds and sesame seeds for crunch.
