SIDE DISH

GINGERED SWEET POTATO-

APPLE SALAD

Vinaigrettes and bottled dressings with acidic ingredients like mustard keep at room temperature. If you have celery in the refrigerator, this is a good way to use some before it's hopelessly limp. Add canned ham and you'll have a lovely meal.

 1 (15-ounce) can sweet potatoes in light syrup, drained and cubed

 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained

 1 apple, cored and diced

 ½ cup diced celery

 ½ cup coarsely chopped cashews or almonds

 ¼ cup bottled honey-mustard dressing

 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

 6 cups mixed salad greens (optional)

Combine sweet potatoes, pineapple, apple, celery and cashews in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine honey-mustard dressing and ginger; pour over sweet potato mixture; toss lightly. Serve over salad greens if available. Makes 6 servings.
