Cubes of cooked sweet potatoes pairs with red onion, feta, avocado (yay!), fresh orange and a light cilantro lime vinaigrette. When I first heard the ingredients, I was wary. I am not a huge sweet potato fan, and I could not see how feta and avocado could make that better. But *SHOCKINGLY* I was wrong.
I have to have this salad when I go to Lola's. Then I get a large pizza, half Pineapple & Prosciutto (with Gorgonzola!) and usually half Artichoke & Goat Cheese. I paired it last week with a Pinot Evil, which was devilishly good with a spicy bite at the end.
Unfortunately we did not get to sit on the patio because of the wait on a Friday night. But I did get to sit on a padded bench with throw pillows which was super comfortable. Its the little things I suppose...
