Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Horseradish Cheddar

Recipe Creator: Chef Rob Thomas

Horseradish Cheddar and roasted sweet potatoes are the stars in this hearty salad. The addition of our not so secret ingredient, salty thick cut bacon, brings all the flavours together – because bacon makes everything better.
