Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking dish with aluminium foil and lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray. Toss the sweet potatoes in the baking dish with half the oil to coat, then spread in an even layer. Roast until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
Whisk the remaining oil, lemon juice, orange juice, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Taste dressing and add 1 tsp lemon juice, if desired.
Toss warm potatoes and dressing in a serving bowl. Add rocket, orange segments, onion and raisins. Toss to combine.
To make Sweet Potato Salad into a main course lunch dish, add slices of fresh mozzarella cheese, cubes of fetta or another soft cheese of your choice before you drizzle on the dressing. Or, serve with slices of cooked chorizo sausage.
For you information, vegans definitely do not eat honey. Let me explain:
We consider it cruel as the bees make it for their own dietary needs, that is to feed their hives and sustain their young.
The production of honey from a single bee over its entire lifetime is only one-twelfth of a teaspoon! So each tablespoon of honey represents the workload of thirty six bees!!
Furthermore, to obtain the honey, the bees are smoked out of their hives, which goes straight into their eyes and respiratory system. Bees are killed in this process. Please remove the vegan label or adjust your recipe accordingly. - 16 Oct 2009
