we love this so delicious0 Helpful
This was delicious and so stinking easy! Loved that the roasted veggies were cherry tomatoes and corn - i.e. no prep. I used white wine vinegar in place of sherry vinegar, and we added some extra veggies we had in the fridge to the salad just to fill it out.0 Helpful
YUM!! Didn't realize that sherry cooking wine isn't the same as sherry vinegar. My bad! Had to add honey to aid the sharpness. This was fantastic.0 Helpful
I seasoned everything a little extra and used Greek yogurt for sour cream0 Helpful
I would bake the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes before mixing it with the other veggies. The sweet potatoes were still uncooked at 14 minutes.0 Helpful
