    We really enjoyed this both warm and cold. I added the onion to the potatoes in the oven during the last 15 minutes of roasting to soften it up. Make sure to roast your sweet potatoes until they get some color from caramelization.  -  23 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is pretty basic but it is good. It (salt/pepper/cumin/cilantro/lime) can be adjusted based on the individuals taste.  -  24 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very versatile. Honestly I changed it a bit because of the things I had on hand (parsley, not cilantro; white not red onion; coconut not olive oil,pan roasted not oven roasted) but it still turned out great! I will try the original recipe in the future. (Also, adding a small dollop of Greek yogurt takes this to the next level if you don’t mind making it not vegan.)  -  05 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
