Booze is Good Food Too!

What a pretty salad!  This is the sweet potato salad from Lola's pizza on Bridge Road.  An assortment of flavors combines surprisingly well to make this salad one of the highlights of going to Lola's.

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...
