Step 1: Preparing the Sweet Potatoes

• 2 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in 1–inch cubes
• 2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 °F (or 190°C).

Toss the sweet potatoes with the vinegar, freshly-ground black pepper, and cinnamon.

On a non–stick sheet pan, or one lined with parchment or a silpat, spread out the potatoes evenly. Place in the oven and roast, turning vegetables over once, for 12 to 15 minutes or until tender and slightly browned.

Let the potatoes cool until they are near room temperature.

Step 2: Preparing the Dressing

• 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
• 3 tbsp liquid sweetener
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
• 2 tbsp fresh chives, minced


Prepare the dressing while the potatoes are roasting.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining balsamic vinegar, honey, cinnamon and chives.

Step 3: Finishing the Dish

• 4 cups baby arugula
• 1 small fennel bulb, thinly shaved on mandolin


To finish the dish, in a large bowl, gently toss together the arugula and shaved fennel. Next, add the potatoes, drizzle with dressing and toss.

To serve, place a large helping of salad on a plate and sprinkle with toasted seeds or nuts for an added crunch.

    What could be a replacement for white balsamic vinegar, since it's hard to find where I live?

    You could use dark balsamic, or a light colored vinegar such as rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
