Sweet potatoes are a great source of Vitamins A and C, and make a great substitute for white potatoes in many recipes, including potato salad. Roasting them brings out their sweetness.

Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
