Everyone’s Favourite Salad ( mostly greens with a cheeky side of sticky sweet potato)

This salad is an absolute winner for everyone with the perfect combination of fresh and warm ingredients it makes for a summer or winter lunch or dinner! I took this to a friend’s birthday and it went down a treat. I had to stop myself from eating all the roasted greens while trying to prep the salad because they were just so delicious !
