10 minutes to prepare and 45 minutes to cook

Serves 4


This salad is so good as a healthy lunch, or even to bring to a pot luck, or as a side dish to lamb, or good!


2 large Sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sweet golden raisins
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp grated fresh ginger (more or less is okay too)
1 grated clove of garlic
Juice of 1 lime, fresh if possible
1/4 cup vegetable oil


Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake until tender - about 45 minutes or so, depending on how bit the potatoes are.

When the potatoes are almost ready, whisk all the remaining ingredients into a bowl, excluding raising and onions, making sure the dressing is fully mixed together.

Add the raisins and onions, and let sit for a few minutes.

After the potatoes have cooled, dice them and add them to the dressing and raisin mixture. Gently toss them together. This salad is great if it sits for a few hours!
