Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing


Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing



The combination of ingredients in this salad is magical! Golden caramelised sweet potato that's juicy inside, fresh peppery rocket / arugula, warm soft crunch of pecans, creamy saltiness from goats cheese (or Danish feta), BACON and a drizzle of Honey Lemon Dressing. The dressing is not too sweet - just enough honey to cut through the sharpness of the lemon. Worthy of a meal or a place at a festive gathering!
