Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
- Olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 large Maui onion
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 cup macadamia nut oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread on a sheet pan and roast until tender and golden brown, about 40 minutes. Shake the pan halfway through cooking so the potatoes cook evenly.
Place the onion on a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle the onion with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the onion tightly in the foil and roast until tender and lightly golden brown, about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, chop and set aside.
