This refreshing mint summer salad is a nice spin to a traditional watermelon dish.

It’s a quick and easy three ingredient combo- perfect to bring as a side dish to a summer BBQ.

Mint has many benefits including promotion of digestion, natural stimulant, fights acne and oral infections, and contains potent antioxidants that help and prevent allergies.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Fries

Such a simple yet delicious side, especially nice as the colder weather approaches.

This batch of sweet potato fries has been my best to date, as they got crispy, just the way I like them.

Ingredients:

Sweet Potatos

Olive oil

Garlic powder

Sea salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut one large sweet potato in half, and then into 1/4″ thin strips. Toss the sweet potatoes with 1-2 capfuls of olive oil, garlic powder and sea salt.

Spread the strips evenly on to a baking pan. Make sure to not overcrowd, as we want them to roast.  I make sure most are separated from each other.

Place in the oven and cook for 40-50 minutes, turning the fries 2-3 times during that time to cook evenly.

Remove once the edges begin to brown and crisp.

Enjoy!!!!
