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!
1. I like using Goats Cheese and Danish feta (the soft creamy feta, rather than hard like Greek feta) for this salad. They are creamy and soft, yet can be crumbled. Blue cheese would also work well with this salad, or any other cheese of choice that can be crumbled but is creamy when you bite into it.
2. My tips for roasting sweet potato so they are beautifully caramelised and not soggy on the outside: Don't use too much oil (really!) and roast in a hot oven!
