Pear and Sweet Potato Dippers in Curry Yogurt
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Serve with spiced nuts on the side.
1-2 sweet potatoes
Slice the sweet potato into thin strips like french fries. Heat the butter or oil in a skillet, and fry the potato strips several minutes to soften and to brown a bit, but not to get too soft. Allow to cool, sprinkle with a little salt if desired. Combine apple juice, lemon juice, and zest and sprinkle over the pears. When ready to serve arrange the potato slices and pears (pat or shake them dry if they are dripping) on a beautiful serving plate. In a bowl, combine the solid yogurt (discard any liquids) with the curry and parsley or cilantro. Place in a bowl and place in the middle of the serving platter of the pears and potatoes. Sprinkle spiced nuts around it. Dip pear and potato slices into sauce and enjoy along with the spiced nuts.
