Sweet Potato and Feta Salad recipe

Try this tasty salad as an alternative to a simple green side salad.


  • 750g sweet potatoes
  • 200g baby spinach
  • 100g pine nuts
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 1 red onion
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. clear runny honey
  • 1 tsp. grainy mustard
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into slices. Slice the onion into thin half-moons and crumble the feta cheese.

  2. Place the sweet potato slices into boiling water and simmer them for five minutes. Once simmered, drain them and then drizzle them with a little olive oil and salt or pepper. Cook them on a griddle pan or under the grill for five minutes or so, turning once, until chargrilled and tender. Set them to one side.

  3. Whisk together the balsamic, honey and mustard with a dash of olive oil.

  4. Mix together the spinach, pine nuts and red onion slices.

  5. Tumble the sweet potato and the feta over the salad and drizzle with the dressing.

You could also dress this salad with lemon juice and olive oil, and you could replace the sweet potato with butternut squash if you so desire. This recipe yields four portions.
