Roasted Murasaki Sweet Potato Salad

My Roasted Murasaki Sweet Potato Salad is the solution to your holiday side dish needs! All of the ingredients are from Trader Joe’s. This dish is also Vegan and Gluten Free.

What are Murasaki Sweet Potatoes?

Murasaki’s are an oblong purple sweet potato. The flavor is mild and not as sweet as your typical orange sweet potato. But if you love yams and sweet potato in general, you will want to try these!

This Roasted Murasaki Sweet Potato Salad is super easy to make.

All of the items should be at Trader Joe’s but if for some reason you can’t locate them, here are some good substitutions from a regular grocery store:

  • Starting off with our main star, the Murasaki sweet potato- a good substitute is the white sweet potato. They have similiar taste and texture.
  • Broccoli slaw- you can use any broccoli slaw that consists of broccoli and shredded carrots. Another option is to buy a bag of shedded carrots and shred your own raw broccoli.
  • Dried cranberries- if you do not want to use dry fruit, a delicious substitute is satsumas. 2 or 3 is good and they should be sweet enough.
  • Vegan dill dressing- this item is a Trader Joe’s exclusive. It is located in the refrigerated section. For a substitute, you want to use another fresh vegan dressing. If you need to get bottled, Primal Kitchen makes a vegan ranch. You can use that and add some fresh dill.
  • Everything but the bagel seasoning- this is another Trader Joe’s item however I have seen other brands make their own version. This seasoning is not needed (and is totally optional) in order to make this salad. I have made this a ton of times without it. It happens to enhance the flavor though.

Are Murasaki Sweet Potatoes the same as Japanese Sweet Potatoes?

I used to think they were! If you have never seen a Japanese sweet potato, you can find them at Whole Foods. They typically are pretty big, way larger than a Murasaki. However they have the same taste.

But after some research, they are considered to be two different potatoes. The Murasaki is grown in Louisiana!

Since the potatoes are cut small, they will roast much faster in the oven.
