Fall is here and I for one am looking forward to a switch up in dining and baking. While I am a huge BBQ and grilling fan, it’s nearing slow cooker season, heartier meals and comfort food. Now comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy either. Check out this beautiful Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Salad!
I’m excited to partner with Hamilton Beach®. I received the Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Electric Spiralizer that I used in this recipe. I am happy for the opportunity to share brands with you that I believe in, and I hope you enjoy this holiday inspired salad.
This Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Salad a cinch to put together, too.
I love to use seasonal vegetables in salads and sometimes make them into the meal itself. For those of you with kids, I know sometimes getting them to eat their veggies can be a hassle, but even adults enjoy the look of spiralized vegetables. I know I do!
A wonderful sweet honey mustard dressed sweet potato, zucchini and Brussels sprouts salad that has the savory and salty bacon and tender dried cranberries with almonds for a perfect side dish or main meal.
