I know I’m hardly showing any culinary prowess with this one but that’s perhaps one of the reasons why I like — it’s so quick and easy — and did I mention that it’s scrummy?!
With summer coming I’m looking to shed a few pounds, which means looking for healthy and light meals — this one is my new favourite. It’s by far the tastiest salad I’ve eaten!
Roasted Sweet Potato, Red Onion and Feta Salad
What you will need:
Seed mix (I used pumpkin, sunflower, linseed and flax)
Peel your sweet potato and slice it into medallions. Par-boil for five to ten minutes. Meanwhile, peel and slice your red onion. Pan fry both of these with a little olive oil until the onions are soft and the potato is browned.
While that’s cooking, mix your spinach, seeds and diced feta in a bowl.
Leave your potato and onion to cool slightly, then add those to the salad. Next add a sprinkle of chopped mint, a light splash of olive oil and the juice of half a lime. (I popped the rest in a bottle of beer to have with it — well, the salad cancels the beer out, no?)
