Replace fresh cheese with blue cheese if you want your salad to have an intense flavor.

You’ll just love this avocado and roasted yam salad! It’s not only delicious, but it’s also really easy to make. Roasting the yam might take some time, but if you’d like, you can roast the yam the day before and then just put together the salad the following day. Give it a try!
