This salad is mostly about the visual, I mean it tastes super yum too but look at it! Doesn’t the picture alone make you want to gobble it up this instance? I went for kind of a fiery color theme with this and the sesame seeds add lovely contrast and crunchy texture to the dish. It would be great to add some sort of bean such as soya beans or chickpeas to this for added protein. It is a wonderful light lunch or could be used as a side to a main meal. Having the sweet potato prebaked makes this dish so speedy and you can have it whipped up in under 5mins.
