Sweet Potato and Pecan Salad

This is another recipe that I got from my mom. Unfortunately the girls weren't wild about it, but Kevin and I loved it. Another plus is that it is good for you and easy to make. My mom got the recipe from the TV show The Biggest Loser.

1 sweet potato, 12 oz, baked
1/2 large red delicious apple, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
2 Tbsp pecans, chopped
Peel of 1 lemon, grated
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp apple juice concentrate, thawed
1 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp ground red pepper

Cool the sweet potato slightly, then peel and cut into bite-sized pieces.

In a large bowl, combine the potato, apple, celery, and pecans. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon peel and juice, apple juice concentrate, oil, parsley and pepper. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture and toss to coat.

Note: We left out the celery and used more potato and apple than called for. It was even yummy as lunch leftovers.
