How to make Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

Start by heating your oven to 350°F (180°C). Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into big pieces. Mix them up with olive oil and a bit of salt. Put them on a baking sheet and let them cook for about 30-35 minutes until they get a nice golden color and become soft. After that, let them cool down.

While the sweet potatoes are cooling, chop up some hazelnuts and toast them in a hot pan. This gives them a yummy crunch.

Now, for the dressing: chop up onion and parsley and put them in a bowl. Add honey, olive oil, and vinegar. Sprinkle in a bit of salt and pepper. Mix it all together to create a tasty dressing.

Place the cooled sweet potatoes on a serving plate. Pour the dressing over them. Sprinkle on the toasted hazelnuts and break the feta into chunks. Gently mix everything, being careful not to break the potatoes. Now, your delicious dish is ready to be enjoyed!
