      Absolutely delish! Loved the combination of the flavors and of course, we adore sweet potatoes - roasted, baked, mashed, etc. They are so delicious and so good for you. Will definitely keep this recipe on my short list. Made for Cooking Tag Mania, October, 2013.

      This recipe is fabulous. A new favorite with new heights in flavor! I used red wine vinegar, and used goat cheese instead of blue. (all I had) I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for sharing it with us!
