Quick and Easy Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet Potato feta and cherry tomato salad in a white bowl

It maybe a little bit of a lie to call this a salad, as I guess technically it isn’t. Or maybe it is depending on who you ask. Are carbs allowed in a salad? Is a salad allowed to be warm? Well this is a very quick and easy sweet potato salad. You’re looking at 4 ingredients and around 30 minuets of your precious time.

This rather delicious looking bowl of goodness can be eaten by 2 people as a side. But tonight been home alone, I decided to have it all to myself as a main. It was bloody lovely too.

 

INGREDIENTS FOR 1 LARGE BOWL OR 2 SIDES

1 large sweet potato
50-75g of feta cheese – it just depends how cheesy you want it. Add as little or as much as you want
6 ish ripe cherry tomatoes 
Avocado Oil – because thats what I had in but olive oil will work just as well

DIRECTIONS

– Pre heat your oven to 190c (375f or old school gas mark 5)

– Put a healthy club of your oil in a roasting tray and pop in the oven to warm up

– Wash your sweet potato but leave the skin on, cube into 2cm chunks and dry off on some kitchen roll

– Pop your sweet potato chunks into the hot oil and cook for 25mins

– While the potato is cooking cube your feta into 1cm chunks and your tomatoes into 1/4s, pop in a bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper

РOnce your potato is cooked add it all into the bowl with the cheese and tomatoes, gently toss together (no need to drain the oil).

– Ta Daaaaaa! Pop it onto a plate and you’re ready to go. The warm sweet potato starts to melt the feta a little bit and there you have your dreamy salad.

*As you may have noticed, I don’t really have many measurements when it comes to this dish. I originally had it as a side in an Hello Fresh Meal but can’t find the recipe for the life of me so did it all my memory. So feel free to experiment. Next time I may add some garlic when roasting the potato mmm.
