  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt & black pepper
  • 1 lb of naturally-smoked bacon cooked and diced
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple tidbits

  • 1 medium orange zested and juiced
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar or other
  • 2 tsp medium curry powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Place diced sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Toss with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes until tender and browned. Remove and cool.
  3. When cooled, put the sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Add the bacon, pineapple, pecans and chopped tarragon. Gently stir to combine.
  4. In a medium bowl; whisk together the mayo, orange zest & juice, curry powder, Dijon and vinegar to make the dressing. Pour over the sweet potato salad and gently stir in.
  5. This can be served right away, but will be more flavourful if you can refrigerate it for an hour or so to allow the flavours to blend and for the sweet potatoes to absorb some of the dressing.
