Balsamic Lime Vinaigrette


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.

  • Peel and dice the sweet potatoes and place them on top of the bacon.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the sweet potatoes are soft.
  • While the bacon and sweet potatoes are cooking, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lime juice and zest.
  • Mince the jalapeno, garlic, and green onion and add it to the olive oil/balsamic mixture.
  • When the bacon and sweet potatoes are cooked, transfer them to a large serving bowl.
  • Toss with the vinaigrette and enjoy warm or cold.


This dish is awesome for any meal -- you can add leftover diced chicken or steak if you want to up the protein.
