Roasted Sweets & Greens Recipe

Perfectly roasted sweet potatoes are balanced beautifully by an elegant dressing of cider vinegar, fresh garlic and peppery arugula. Hazelnuts add texture and buttery richness. Due to their high fat content, hazelnuts are particularly susceptible to rancidity. For optimal shelf life, store in an air-tight container in the freezer, for up to 3 months.
