Sweet Potato and Feta Salad

Do you ever have those days when you can’t figure out what you’re craving for dinner? You just don’t know what to cook. Regardless of what the meal plan says, you stand in front of the fridge for 20 minutes staring at your food, wishing it would magically make itself. And that it would taste delicious.

I had one of those days last week. It was a long-ish day at work and I was tired. Feta stuffed chicken definitely¬†doesn’t make itself, and it quite frankly would take way too much effort for my liking. I knew I wanted to keep Feta in the mix, so I grabbed a few other ingredients to whip together a quick and easy sweet potato and Feta salad.

I don’t exactly know how all these ingredients came together. Perhaps they were just within arms reach of the open fridge door. Having baked sweet potatoes for snacks probably helped. If they weren’t already made I highly doubt this concoction would have happened. In any case, it satisfied the mystery cravings and my taste buds were happy!
