Raw Sweet Potato Salad with Curry Almond Sauce is a unique and refreshing salad that is perfect for those hot summer days when you can’t bear to turn on the oven or stove. I was skeptical the first time I tried a raw sweet potato salad, but I was pleasantly surprised. Raw sweet potatoes have a great crunch and fresh flavor that is far from starchy.
Sweet potatoes are packed with beta-carotene which our body converts to vitamin A. Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that boosts the immune system, keeps the skin healthy and maintains eye health. Sweet potatoes are high in antioxidants and lower the potential health risks associated with heavy metals and free radicals as they pass through our digestive tract. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and are great for people with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
The healthy fat from the almond butter and coconut oil in the Curry Almond sauce creates a sweetness and facilitates vitamin A absorption. Add currents to this recipe for a hint of sweetness and walnuts for a protein crunch.
Use a spiralizer to make the raw sweet potato salad ‘noodles’, but there are many other kitchen tools you can use. Grating the sweet potatoes with a regular cheese grater or with the grater attachment on your food processor works really well. You can also peel the sweet potatoes with a regular peeler to create fettuccini looking noodles or use a julienne peeler.
Raw Sweet Potato Salad is super easy to make and an excellent dish to help your friends fall in love with raw sweet potatoes. This recipe is best enjoyed the day it is made for optimal sweet potato crunch, but the Curry Almond Sauce can be made in advance.
