Roasted Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Corn Salad with Avocado Dressing

by Michaela

Roasted Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Corn Salad with Avocado Yoghurt Dressing is a very tasty and healthy salad. It contains not only fiber and carbohydrates (sweet potatoes and sweet corn) but also proteins (black beans) as well as healthy fat (avocado and olive oil) and therefore it will fill you up for hours! If you like particularly sweet potato, avocado, and cilantro, you will love this salad!

You may appreciate that the preparation of the Roasted Sweet Potato Salad is relatively fast. Sweet potatoes need to be roasted with oil and spices in the oven for about 25-30 minutes…

…In the meantime, you can make the avocado, yogurt, and cilantro dressing with garlic which gives the salad an excellent aromatic taste! Then you just assemble all the ingredients for the salad and pour the avocado dressing over it. Enjoy!

P.S. If you don´t have black beans, you can also use chickpeas, I already made it with chickpeas and loved it too. But I still prefer to use dark beans so that it gives a light contrast to orange sweet potatoes and yellow corn. 😉
