Roasted Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Salad with Chipotle Yogurt Dressing
I love easy dishes that turn out so delicious. For example this roasted sweet potato and goat cheese salad is a perfect healthy weekday meal that takes no time at all! This can also be served as a perfect starter when hosting a dinner party, a side dish or even stuff it into your lunch box for work. Easy and delicious… who does not love the sound of that?!
This recipe serves 2.
2 sweet potatoes (about 320g)
6 green asparagus
130g goat cheese, crumbled
125g lettuce of choice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
For the dressing:
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 ½ teaspoon honey
½ lime, juiced
2 tablespoons chipotle sauce (from can or bottle)
Pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Peel the sweet potato and cut into even chunks. Transfer to an oven tray and toss with the olive oil. Roast the sweet potato for about 30-40 minutes.
For the dressing, whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until ready to use.
Using a vegetable peeler shave the green asparagus into thin ribbons. Don’t worry if the tips break off. Season the asparagus ribbons with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
While the potatoes are cooling off, start assembling your salad. Mix the lettuce with some of the dressing and divide among two plates. Now top with the sweet potato chunks, goat cheese and asparagus ribbons. Serve the remaining dressing on the side or save for another dish. Enjoy!
