I hope you are well and have been enjoying this warmer weather!
This week, I thought I would share with you an evening meal I have been absolutely loving that is healthy, quick to prepare and only needs four ingredients: My sweet potato and salsa salad.
- 1 Sweet potato
- 1 Red onion
- 3 Salad tomatoes
Step 1 – Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees
Step 2 – Place your sweet potato onto a baking tray. Note: You do not need to stab holes in it and can add a little salt and pepper for extra flavour if you wish.
Step 3 – Put your sweet potato into the oven for around 30-45 minutes depending on the size.
Step 4 – Dice your red onion and put into a bowl. Note: I usually do the whole onion as this creates a good amount of salsa that I can use again.
Step 5 – Slice some cucumber, dice it into small cubes and place in the bowl with the red onions.
Step 6 – Cut your salad tomatoes in half then each side in half again.
Step 7 – Cut or scrap the jelly and seeded bit of the tomato and put in the bin.
Step 8 – Dice your tomatoes and add to the bowl with the onion and cucumber.
Step 9 – Mix these together and that is your salsa complete!
Step 10 – Check on your potato after 30 mins and by giving it a little squeeze. If it is still hard, pop it back into the oven. Note: If you are feeling super hungry at this point, pop it into the microwave with a piece of kitchen roll over it for a few minutes, then pop it back into the oven for a minute or two to get it crispy.
Step 11 – Once your potato is cooked, open it up and serve with your salsa in the middle!
Step 12 – Put any remaining salsa in the fridge to use again.
I hope you found this interesting – give it a try because it is delicious!
