Cook Time:


  • 3 pound(s) sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 small red onion, diced small
  • 1/3 cup(s) honey
  • 1/3 cup(s) sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) minced fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup(s) chopped and toasted pecans
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper, to taste


  1. 1. Put the sweet potatoes in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and cover them with water. Bring them to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are cooked through but still firm, 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the potatoes.
  2. 2. Drain the potatoes and add the onion, honey, vinegar, thyme, pecans and olive oil. Gently toss to mix, season to taste with salt and pepper, then gently toss again and let cool. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
