Hi! Thank you for stopping by to watch me, Leah, cook kosher. I've been the owner operator of my boutique catering firm in Seattle, Leah's Catering, for the past 14 years.
Sitting at a friend's house discussing the upcoming release of the Washington State Jewish Historical Society's cookbook, she pulls a salad from the refrigerator to show me. She doesn't have a recipe as she bought it at a local gourmet shop. I look at it and decide it will be on the menu for my sister's birthday party. I like the idea of a potato salad that is mixed with yams, corn and black beans. Moving away from the expected lime juice dressing, I use a variation of the dressing I use on the Moroccan Carrot salad. I add a little jalapeno pepper and smoked paprika along with the cilantro.
I'm not sure how the potatoes and yams are prepared in the salad I saw. I decide to oven roast the Yukon Golds, yams and corn on the cob all at once on a sheet pan. All the veggies finish cooking at the same time. While they are in the oven, I make the dressing and prep the other veggies. Very simple and very tasty....yum!

|Estimated POINT value:|
Wash potatoes and cut into chunks. Peel the yams and cut into similar sized chunks. Spray a 13" x 9" pan or jelly roll pan. Put the potatoes and yams onto the pan and drizzle with olive oil. Add the corn on the cob and rub with the oil. Sprinkle all with salt and pepper. Place into a hot, 425' oven and bake until just tender. About 10 minutes into baking, loosen the potatoes and yams so they don't stick. Continue to bake another 10 - 15 minutes until just tender.
When baked, remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, make the dressing.
To make dressing, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, smoked paprika, garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
Place the potatoes and yams into a large bowl. Cut the corn from the cob and add to the potatoes and yams. Rinse the black beans and drain well. Add to mixture. Add remaining ingredients and dressing. Toss. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
