Sweet Potato and Broccoli Salad

This is a colorful side dish that is easy and quick to make. I used a homemade tahini-based vegan sauce (recipe below), but you can use mayo or sour cream if you are not vegan.

1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 bunch broccoli, cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp walnuts
2 Tbsp raisin (Omit if you have blood sugar issues)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup tahini-based vegan sauce (recipe below)

1. In a steamer, steam sweet potatoes.
2. One minute before the sweet potatoes are done, add broccoli.
3. Transfer the steamed vegetables to a bowl.  Add walnuts, raisin (if using), cinnamon, and sauce and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Refrigerate for a few hours.
