Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 100 gr Baby spinach
  • one big Sweet potatoes (450 gr)
  • about 25 gr Pecans
  • 80 gr Goat cheese (or feta to crumble on top)
  • Sesame seeds

For the maple vinaigrette:

  • 30 gr Extra virgin olive oil
  • 55 gr Maple syrup
  • 20 gr Modena balsamic vinegar
  • a pinch Salt


  • First, preheat your oven at 200°C (400°F) 
  • Peel your sweet potatoes and chunk them. 
  • Put them into a bowl, season with just a tiny bit of oil and salt. Bake for about 30/40 minutes or until soft.

For the vinaigrette:

  • Combine extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and salt into a bowl. Stir until emulsified.

For the salad:

  • Put together your salad - on a plate or bowl - by adding baby spinach (obviously wash it before), sweet potatoes, goat cheese (or feta), pecans and sesame seeds. Drizzle some vinaigrette over the top (don't use it all, store the remaining in the fridge) and your salad is done!
