Sweet Potato Salad (paleo)

Cold Sweet Potato Salad (paleo)

The sweet potato salad is a super easy dish that is dairy and gluten free. It is great because not only is it filling, but it is packed with nutrients. This dish is awesome for taking to picnics, potlucks, or even just as a side dish. Adjust the quantity of potatoes according to how many people you are going to feed.


  • 6 sweet potatoes cubed
  • 3 yams cubed
  • ½ bunch cilantro chopped
  • 4 organic cage free hardboiled eggs diced
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • ½ cup organic full fat coconut milk
  • 1 red onion either chopped fine raw or you can caramelize the onions
  • ½ tsp curry powder & cumin
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  •  sea salt and pepper to your taste
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil for roasting
  • optional: 1 Tablespoon mayo (find a homemade recipe on the web or use store bought if you want).


Roast the sweet potatoes in coconut oil at 400 degrees for at least 30 minutes–toss a couple times during the cooking. Let them cool a bit. Put potatoes, celery and onions in a bowl. In another bowl mix plain coconut milk, lime and 1 Tablespoon mayo. Add curry powder, turmeric, cumin, ginger, salt and pepper adjust to suit your taste. Pour this mixture over the potatoes and mix well. Top with cilantro and or pumpkin seeds!! This recipe lasts in the fridge for  a couple days, and gets better with time!


About Skinny Fat Kids

I am a fat kid at heart. I don’t start a day without planning a meal; whether it is cooking with friends or trying out a new spot. It might have something to do with being a Mexican/Italian.. Since I was young I loved to help out in the kitchen and was open to all types of food. I appreciate what cooking comes along with… Family, friends and times you will never forget. Food for me is something that you can make taste good even though it is healthy! People have no idea how easy it is to throw together a perfectly well balanced meal that provides them with all the essential nutrients one needs. Each of us have your unique genetic needs, tastes, backgrounds which can be factored into your food and nutrition plan. “Change is one constant in our lives.” You can rid disease and illness through food. Food is something people do not clearly understand. I strongly believe in cooking with local, seasonal, organic, and nutrient-rich ingredients as best as you can. It is essential to eat only grass fed dairy and meat because they provide more essential nutrients as well as high levels of vitamins. Having a garden and knowing where your food comes from is essential! I owe a lot to my mom who many can attest that she is a GREAT entertainer. She seems to always be having a “dinner party” and always throws together something delicious. My objective in this blog is to share my love and knowledge of food and cooking with all you peeps. I want to give you all ideas on how easy it is to eat healthy and make food taste good. I want the standard american diet to be something of the past… TBC
