Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese and Almond Salad

Had dinner tonight with a group of friends, and the vegetarian in the group contributed this delicious salad. Had to get the recipe! Turns out it is from a cookbook entitled Veg Power distributed by Weight Watchers! I couldn’t believe how tasty it was. The original recipe called for pecans, but all we had was almonds so we used those and it was positively delicious.
