Wasabi Sweet Potato Salad (From Blissful Bites)

Wasabi Sweet Potato Salad

A few days ago I shared with you my recipe for Spicy Chickpea Burgers… in case you were wondering what else I ate with my burgers, consider your curiosity satisfied!

I received a copy of Blissful Bites for Christmas and when I unwrapped it, it fell open to the picture of Wasabi Sweet Potato Salad on Page 116. Something about it instantly piqued my interest- not just the photo but the ingredients. Wasabi and sweet potato? Tell me more!

I had never bought white sweet potatoes before, but I was able to find them at my local King Soopers. The rest of the ingredients were easy as pie too, including the tube of wasabi paste. I love wasabi. When we go out for sushi I always mix gobs of it into my little dish of soy sauce. I deviated from her recipe a little bit- I boiled the potatoes instead of steaming them, and I ended up using more wasabi than she calls for, but other than that I followed her directions. The dish came together wonderfully. Just look at it, and imagine an explosion of sweet n ‘ heat in your mouth. You taste the sweetness of the taters first, and the wasabi comes on at the end, just as you finish chewing. The cukes add great texture and crunchiness.  I wish I had some cute rating system (it would obviously be based on my dogs), so that I could give this dish “3 Cocker Paws Up” and you would know what I’m talking about and not think I’m crazy… but I don’t. But believe this- taste this dish, and you won’t think I’m crazy at all!

    Would you guys say that the it the book has crazy ingredients? things you wouldn’t have, like everytime you want to make something you have to go shopping.
    Thank you

      I wouldn’t say any crazier than other cookbooks. I’d say most of the recipes have pretty standard ingredients, things you could find at your local store.
