Great recipe, but I confess I love to make changes that fit our tastes. And, I am always looking for the easiest way to make a recipe. I simply toss the prepared onion and sweet potatoes on a baking sheet with the olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. I don't measure these, but I generally use much less salt in all of my recipes. I don't use Mache, but substitute Romaine or even Spring Mix lettuces. After zesting a navel orange, I also add the orange wedges to the salad. Can be served with grilled chicken slices on top. Purple onion or shallots are also great substitutes when sweet onions are not on hand. As for the vinaigrette, it is wonderful. I finely chop the ginger. Just put all of the ingredients into a container and blend if you have a hand blending wand....so quick and easy! I don't do any of the straining the recipe suggests.
I would not remake this specific recipe again; it needed more flavor besides the sweet potato & onions; I added glazed walnuts, cranberries and golden raisins to achieve a more desirable flavor
This was really good! My kids actually really enjoyed the "french fries!" I substituted garlic salt for it once and it tasted better to my husband and myself.
