With a nutty, sweet, and roasted flavor, this salad is the ideal side for baked ham.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine sweet potato, onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; toss to coat. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on 2 lightly greased baking sheets.

Step 2

Bake at 450° for 35 minutes or until browned, removing onion after 25 minutes, and stirring sweet potato.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 12 minutes or until crisp. Drain bacon, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in pan.

Step 4

Add remaining 1/4 cup olive oil, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, vinegar, mustard, and pepper to drippings in skillet. Stir well. Transfer vinaigrette to a large bowl. Add roasted sweet potato, onion, pecans, and raisins, tossing gently to coat. Cool.

Step 5

Note: If you have only one oven, place 1 baking sheet on the lower oven rack and 1 on the upper rack; switch positions after 25 minutes. Bake 5 to 10 more minutes or until potatoes are browned.

This has become one of our favorite recipes. I was looking for sweet potato recipes to use a huge box of potatoes that I bought at the farmers market. This one is definitely a keeper. I have made this several times and the only adjustment I make is to reduce the oil to 2 T when adding to the bacon drippings. The combination of flavors is perfect.

This is a terrific recipe. We had it along with ham for our Christmas meal, and my family loved it.
