I am not too fond of Yam but roasted Yam is the only exception. Almost crisp like chips it works so well as a snack or in a salad. Today we are using it in the Roasted Yam Salad with Green Tomato Salsa.
Doesn’t this Roasted Yam Salad with Green Tomato Salsa look so pretty? And I assure you it tastes even better than it looks. If you don’t believe me, make a batch this weekend.
I love most tubers and Yam is probably the exception to that. The only way I enjoy yam is when the purple yam is used in a dessert. Or yam chips, I don’t mean the wafers kind of chips but those slow roasted thin slices of goodness. Mum used to fry them on the gas but I find doing it in the oven easier. Needs less of my attention and monitoring.
Apart from using it in this yam salad, the roasted yam is great as a starter. Served with a hung curd dip it makes for a perfect side for a beer or wine evening. So this post has actually two recipes for you, a starter and a salad. See what a good girl am I, I have started to write two-in-one posts now. Actually, make that three because this also has the recipe of the most kickass green tomato salsa in it.
Jokes apart, the husbandman at home said this was one of his favourite salads from the series. Though I think that’s because he loves both yam and green tomatoes. But why don’t you try it out and tell me if you agree with him?
