  • Makes: Serves 4.


1 dark-fleshed sweet potato

a few handfuls of baby spinach

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup crumbled feta

a small handful of toasted walnuts


1/3 cup canola or olive oil

3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. honey or maple syrup

1 Tbsp. grainy mustard


1Roast the sweet potato whole in a 350F oven for about an hour (this can be done while something else is baking). Cool and cut into 1/2" slices. If you like, brush them with oil.

2Preheat the grill to medium-high and grill the slices of sweet potato until char-marked on each side. Lay the spinach out on a plate, and layer with grilled sweet potato slices and slivered onion; scatter with feta and nuts. Whisk or shake together the dressing ingredients and pour overtop.
