Sweet Potato Energy Salad

Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 1 hour

Using Winking Girl! Salsa in this recipe adds flavor and texture without adding access oil. This recipe is a camping favorite because it can be eaten hot or cold and its ingredients are perfect for sustaining energy.

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 16oz package of smoked sausage (or 8 good quality hot dog links) cut into bite sized pieces
  • 5-6 stalks celery cut into bite sized pieces
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup Winking Girl Salsa (I used Mild Tomatillo)
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dill-weed
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


Preheat oven for 400°F

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss until well mixed. Lay evenly onto a foiled cookie sheet and cover with a second sheet of foil. Make sure there is a small vent in the foil somewhere so a little steam can escape.

Bake for 40-45 minutes

Serves about 5
