This spiralized sweet potato salad is bursting with flavor! It’s vegan and gluten free too it’s perfect for bringing to gatherings. Add your fav protein for a full dinner!
I am absolutely obsessed with sweet potato noodles right now made with my handy spiralizer. Have you given them a shot yet? I love the zucchini noodles but they lack a bit of the depth of consistency that I crave from regular pasta. Sweet potatoes are my new answer to this! Of course you can tell there is zucchini in this as well so I’m still definitely a fan of those too.
This salad uses my new vegan pesto recipe, which was a new experiment for me with playing with nutritional yeast. I’ve got a number of friends (and now kiddos at my oldest’s preschool) who can’t have dairy, so I’ve been pushing myself to develop more dairy free recipes. I was SHOCKED at how cheesy and delicious the nutritional yeast made this. I am a cheese addict too so that is saying a lot.
Isn’t that sauce gorgeous? So bright and fresh.
I’m loving this sweet potato pesto salad for a side dish at parties but it’s also a perfect light lunch or dinner, especially in the summer time. Throw some shrimp or chicken on the BBQ and toss this together and you are good to go for dinner easy peasy.
This recipe would also totally work perfectly with our chimichurri sauce recipe if you want to mix it up!
