Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the sweet potato with the oil and some seasoning. Spread on a baking parchment-lined baking tray and roast for 30-35 mins until tender. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients with a little more seasoning. Pile the potato onto a serving platter and drizzle over the dressing. Scatter over the feta and nuts, and very gently toss with your hands so you don’t break up the potato.

So simply yet so tasty!! The sweetness of the honey balances the acidity and tangyness of the vinegar and feta.
I like to serve it warm, straight from the oven.

This is simply one of the best recipes I've ever tried. Its perfect for entertaining, for bbq's etc - very versatile. I also add a dollop of pesto to the dressing. Every single person who has eaten this has raved about it and demanded the recipe!

I've also served it with gammon, and chicken breasts stuffed with cheese and mustard and wrapped in bacon. Utterly scrumptious!!

Tried this out for a luncheon, as was looking for recipes that I could serve for multinational guests that included a Vegetarian and a Coeliac sufferer. Delicious alternative, went down a treat with both our German and Bulgarian guests. Even the meat eaters loved it, will become a favourite for this years bbqs, I'm sure
