Sweet Potato and Poblano Salad with Honey and Rosemary Dressing

August 6, 2010

Another winner from Jim’s 30th Birthday Party BBQ/Picnic. I like potato salad, but a lot of others don’t, and I was excited that this one that I found on The Noshery was lighter and healthier than the traditional recipes. I did adjust the recipe slightly, as I didn’t think it had enough potatoes in the original. Also, the recipe below has you grill the potatoes, but I was too lazy busy to do that, so I roasted them in the oven at 425 for 30 minutes.


  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 ½ Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Shallot, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp
  • 5 pounds Yams, peeled and cubed
  • 2 fresh Poblano Chilies, seeded, diced
  • 3 Green Onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal


  1. Preheat barbecue (medium heat) or oven. Toss yams with 2 Tbsp oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Grill or roast for 20 to 30 minutes, turning frequently. Transfer potatoes to work surface, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces, set aside to cool.
  2. Whisk first 6 ingredients in small bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Place potatoes, poblanos and green onions in large bowl. Drizzle dressing over; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
