I love sweet potatoes, they have amazing flavor and texture and are so versatile. From dinner to dessert there isn't much that a sweet potato can't do! Because I eat them so much, I'm always on the lookout for a new way to add flavor to my sweet potato game. 

I created this bacon and feta sweet potato salad to use with my meal prep as a side for my proteins for lunch or dinner. Bacon, pecans, cranberries and feta all come together to create a delicious sweet and salty flavor profile that is deeply satisfying! I swear that this salad gets better the longer it sits in your fridge. With just a handful of ingredients you can whip up a delicious and filling side salad that goes perfectly with any protein you can think of!  

Enjoy!
