Do you ever go to a restaurant, try a dish and then immediately think “I NEED this in my life!”

Anyone?

Well, that’s how I felt when I tried the Roasted Sweet Potato Salad at Thrive360 not too long ago.

While I adore sweet potatoes, when I heard that the flavor combination for The Roasted Sweet Potato Salad included mint I was a liiiiiittle skeptical.  Woah, did this salad prove me wrong.

The hint of mint was just what the sweet potatoes needed to take these root vegetables to the next level.

Notes

*the half cup serving of sweet potato in this side dish is considered a safe low FODMAP amount for those who are sensitive. This is based on the Monash University guidelines.
**2 Tbsp of sunflower seeds is considered low FODMAP. I prefer to make my own sunflower seed butter because many store brands contain sugar. To make the amount for this recipe: Put 1/4 cup sunflower seeds in a food processor and blend, scraping the sides until smooth.

This recipe has not been tested for FODMAP content, but ingredients are used in amounts compliant with the Monash University App and guidelines. Please eat the foods that make you feel your best!
