Every Tuesday, we scan Food52′s delectable menu of recipes for the healthiest picks they’ve got—bringing you seasonal, scrumptious fare that’s really good for you.

Food 52This winter salad is great for an easy weeknight meal or as a festive holiday side. The sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber, and walnuts provide your daily dose of healthy fats.

Yes-We-Can-Have-Sweet Potatoes for Dinner Salad
Serves 4

3 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 bunch arugula
1/2 cup feta, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup whole scallions, tops and bottoms, roughly chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
1 garlic clove, crushed

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and chop the sweet potatoes into slightly larger than bite-sized pieces. Toss with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, generously salt, and place in a large roasting pan; if they look claustrophobic, use another pan. Roast for about a half-hour, gently turning every 10 minutes or so. You want them golden and toothsome, but not mushy. During the last five to ten minutes of roasting, add the walnuts to the oven in a separate pan, toasting until fragrant.

2. Meanwhile, place the arugula in a large bowl and add the feta and scallions. Put the ingredients for the dressing in a jar and shake well; remove the garlic clove.

3. When the sweet potatoes and walnuts are just out of the oven, dress the salad. Then scatter the warm sweet potatoes and walnuts over the top. Serve.
