Sweet Potato and Sausage Salad with Garlic Scape Kefir Dressing
Borne out of necessity (and fridge contents), this salad was a triumph! I had some farmer's sausage that I sliced and fried until brown and yummy. Then I cubed and steamed some sweet potato until it was cooked. I then sauteed it in some butter until it went brown and caramelly.
For the dressing I simply whizzed up a few garlic scapes and kefir together in the food processor. If you don't have kefir, just use plain yogurt. I then seasoned the dressing really well.
To serve - I washed and dried a big pile of fresh mesclun from the farmer's market and then put the sausage and sweet potato on top. A drizzle of the dressing finished it up. I was quite tempted to lick the bowl when we were done.
