What is Cajun seasoning

It’s a spice mix that I really love.

It is made from garlic, chili, paprika, onion, black, and cayenne pepper.

You can find this at any store or online.

How to make Cajun Sweet Potato Brussels Sprout Salad

You will need a big sheet pan, otherwise try to 2 small ones.

Start with the sweet potatoes. Wash and peel them, cut into cubes. In a bowl, mix with the olive oil, Cajun seasoning, and season with salt and pepper. Place on sheet pan.

Next prepare the other veggies: clean the used bowl for the sweet potatoes and add clean and shaved Brussels sprouts, onions, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and optional maple syrup.
