This salad blends tender chunks of sweet potatoes with crisp apple pieces. The dressing is made with low fat Greek yogurt and sweetened with a touch of maple syrup.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place diced sweet potatoes in a large plastic bag. Add oil and toss to coat. Add brown sugar and again toss to coat. Wrap sweet potatoes in a packet of aluminum foil. Place the package on a baking pan. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until tender.

Unwrap carefully to prevent burning your hands. Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Allow to cool to room temperature. Add apples, onions and basil.

In a small food processor, combine yogurt, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, maple syrup, and nutmeg. Process until well blended. Pour over sweet potatoes and apples. Stir gently. 

Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
