Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Toss sweet potatoes, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl. Divide the sweet potatoes among 2 rimmed baking sheets. Roast, stirring once halfway through, until the potatoes are softened and beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together vinegar, mustard, sugar, the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the roasted sweet potatoes and arugula; toss to coat.


To make ahead: Refrigerate salad for up to 2 days. Add arugula just before serving.
