Ingredients

  • 1.2kg sweet potato , peeled and cut into biggish chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the dressing

  • 2 shallots (or half a small red onion), finely chopped
  • 4 spring onions , finely sliced
  • small bunch chives , snipped into quarters or use mini ones
  • 5 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the sweet potato chunks with the olive oil and some seasoning, and spread on a baking parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast for 30 - 35 mins until tender and golden. Cool at room temperature.

  • STEP 2

    When just about cool whisk together all the dressing ingredients with a little more seasoning and gently toss through the potato chunks – use your hands to avoid breaking them up.
