    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Cut the sweet potatoes into evenly sized large chunks. Place in a large roasting tin and drizzle over half the oil. Roast for 10 minutes or until just tender.

    4. Empty the salad leaves onto a large platter, top with the roasted vegetables then drizzle over the dressing. Serve warm.
