Sweet Potato, Fig and Feta Salad


Sweet Potato, Fig and Feta Salad

  1. Cut the sweet potato into thin little strips (like matchsticks) and place in a large bowl (if you have a mandolin, use the julienne attachment).
  2. Add the figs, parsley, feta cheese, mustard and cress, mustard seeds and olive oil and mix well.
  3. Add the lime juice, season with black pepper and mix again.


  • Replace the figs for juicy plums or greengages. Large grapes are also good.
