Ingredients

    2 large sweet potatoes, cubed
    2 tsp Herbs de Provence (may sub other herbs - see instructions for other ideas)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 tablespoons white vinegar
    1 tablespoon lemon juice (juice of 1/2 a lemon)
    5 scallions, chopped
    3 stalks celery
    1/2 English cucumber, chopped
    1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
    1/2 cup nonfat yogurt, plain (you can substitute mayo if you choose, either is a nice flavor)
    1/4 cup sunflower seed, toasted, salted

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2 Place cubed sweet potatoes on cookie sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and herbs de provence, then toss. Roast until tender but not mushy for 20-40 minutes depending on the size of your cubes. Ideally prepare this the day before. Allow to cool completely before combining with veggies.
3 Combine all chopped veggies with lemon juice and vinegar. Toss to coat all veggies.
4 Add sweet potatoes and yogurt and toss gently.
5 Add salt and pepper to taste.
6 Sprinkle with sunflower seeds and lemon zest.

Herbs of Provence is a combination of the following herbs: fennel, oregano, savory, thyme, basil, sage, lavender and rosemary... if you don't have all of these, use as much as you can... the combination is delicious... I recommend purchasing Herbs De Provence from Penzeys.com.
