Ingredients

Golden Raisin Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup California golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Salad

  • 3 pounds small orange or yam-type sweet potatoes about 2 inches in diameter
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup California golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
  • Fresh arugula leaves

Instructions

  • For vinaigrette, measure raisins and water into a small saucepan and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until most of the water has evaporated. Let cool, then purée in a blender or small food processor. Whisk in remaining dressing ingredients; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To prepare salad, peel and cut sweet potatoes crosswise into 1/4-inch slices; toss with olive oil in a medium bowl.
  • Grill over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently, until tender and lightly charred. Remove from grill and return to bowl; let cool. Add raisins and chives to bowl and pour dressing over all; stir lightly with a rubber spatula until evenly coated with dressing.
  • Let chill for at least 1 hour before serving on arugula leaves.
