1 large sweet potato, diced
1 piece bacon
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 green onion, chopped
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1 dash red pepper flakes
1 dash cinnamon
sea salt, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay the bacon flat on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the bacon is slightly crispy. Let cool then roughly chop. In a roasting pan, toss the sweet potatoes and garlic in coconut oil and roast for about 30 minutes or until slightly browned. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Toss in green onions, dill, red pepper flakes, cinnamon, and salt and pepper and mix well. Once sweet potatoes are finished cooking, toss them together with the dressing and bacon.
