2 pounds garnet sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 1 red onion, halved and sliced thin
 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
 1 tablespoon maple syrup
 1 Golden Delicious apple, diced
 -- Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste
 2 tablespoons chopped chives
 
 Instructions: Place sweet potato slices in a pot and cover with cold, lightly 
 salted water. Bring slowly to a boil, and let simmer until potatoes are 
 tender but still hold their shape, about 10-15 minutes. Drain carefully 
 and set aside.
 
 Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add half of the onions, 
 and saute until caramelized, about 10 minutes. Add the mustard, red wine 
 vinegar and syrup, and stir until incorporated. Let simmer for about 2 minutes.
 
 Add the apples, stir to combine, and remove from heat. Mix gently with the 
 cooked sweet potatoes and remaining onions, and season to taste with salt 
 and pepper. Sprinkle chives on top, and toss to combine.
 
 Note: This recipe can be easily doubled.
