Sweet Potato Mushroom Salad

I love eating in restaurants. More than that, I love collecting "secret restaurant recipes". I know that I'm not the only one; our member Restaurant has quite a nice collection.

My latest "secret restaurant recipes" comes from a wonderful cafe located in central Israel (in the city Petach Tikva), called CoffeeIn. Every dish is flavored to perfection and all the food is fresh and delicious. If you are in the area, it's definitely worth a visit, and let them know you heard about them on CookKosher. 
 
 
 

Sweet Potato Mushroom Salad

Note: Grating the feta cheese, makes it taste lighter and really converts non feta fans into feta fans. 

 

Ingredients

3 cups freshly sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine
Salt and pepper
1 small sweet potato, scrubbed
1/4 to 1/2 cup oil
4 to 5 cups romaine lettuce
6 to 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 scallions, white and light green parts, sliced
2 to 3 tablespoons roasted peanuts
3 ounces feta cheese, grated
 
Balsamic Vinaigrette:
 
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 squeeze Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Directions

1. Add the mushrooms with the olive oil to a sautee pan over low heat. Sautee 15
minutes, until completely cooked. Drizzle on the wine, and salt and pepper and set aside.
2. Cut the sweet potato into 1/2 inch cubes. Fry the sweet potato in the oil, over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until browned. Flip and lower heat halfway through. Drain and set aside.
3. Combine the lettuce, tomatoes, and scallions. Toss with the sauteed mushrooms, sweet potato, and peanuts.
4. Combine the dressing ingredients. Toss dressing with the salad.
5. Grate the feta cheese over the salad.
 
Serve and enjoy!
 
Yield: serves 4 to 5
