This luscious vegan salad includes plenty of sweet potatoes, tofu and miso—star ingredients in Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost prefecture where an extraordinary number of people live to be well past 100. Thankfully, a small amount of alcohol plays a roll in the Okinawa diet, so you can feel good about eating this dish with a glass of wine. Oregon Pinot Gris is especially delicious with the sweet potatoes and savory miso dressing.
The salad here was tested with widely available orange sweet potatoes, but it’s worth using the purple-fleshed Okinawa sweet potatoes if you can find them. They are rich in the antioxidant anthocyanin, and are less sweet than the orange variety.
