Sweet Potato Salad

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Place the sweet potato on a tray, cut side up, with a drizzle of oil and season with salt, and cook for 40 mins.

For the onions, combine the sugar, vinegar and salt and mix to dissolve the sugar and salt. Add the onions and press the onions into pickling liquid with your hands, then let stand for 15 minutes or even better for a few hours to pickle.

For the green salsa, blend the garlic, parsley, mint, dried oregano, lemon and olive oil until smooth.

Arrange hot sweet potatoes on a platter. Drizzle over the salsa and garnish with onions, feta and roasted almonds.
