A Recipe for the Holiday

Christmas brings us many family traditions and traditional recipes.  This year, step outside the box and try something a little different.  I found this recipe on the Epicurious website and it was a big hit with our family last Christmas.  I'd like to share it with you and maybe you will add a new dish to your traditional dinner.  It pairs well with turkey, cranberry sauce and other vegetable dishes on your dinner table.

2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (2 large)
1   Tablespoon Dijon mustard
4   Teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4  Teaspoon salt
1/4   Cup olive oil
4    Scallions, thinly sliced

Peel sweet potatoes, halve lengthwise, cut lengthwise into 3/4 inch wedges, then cut wedges crosswise into 1-inch pieces.  Steam over boiling water in a large pot, covered, until just tender, 10-12 minutes.

While the potatoes steam, whisk together mustard, vinegar and salt in a large bowl, then add oil in a slow steady steam, whisking until emulsified.  Add hot potatoes, gently toss to combine.  Cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.  Add scallions and salt to taste, gently toss.

Cook's tip:  May be made 2 hours ahead of time.  Toss in scallions just before serving.
