1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped⠀⠀
80 ml parsley (or coriander/cilantro), finely chopped⠀⠀
⠀⠀
INGREDIENTS FOR DRESSING⠀⠀
60 ml olive oil⠀⠀
2.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or white wine vinegar)⠀⠀
A squeeze of lime juice⠀⠀
A squeeze of lemon juice⠀⠀
A dash of maple syrup (optional)⠀⠀
1/4-1/2 tsp garlic salt⠀⠀
Pepper to taste⠀⠀
⠀⠀
DIRECTIONS⠀⠀

Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl.⠀⠀
Pour dressing over salad and toss. Serve immediately or keep for a day or two, covered and refrigerated and serve as required.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
For the fries:⠀⠀
INGREDIENTS⠀⠀
3 large sweet potatoes⠀⠀
2,5 – 3 tbsp cornstarch (approximately 1 tbsp of starch per potato, depending on potato size)⠀⠀
Organic olive oil (I used a mister, but allow for at least 2 tbsp of oil regardless of application method)⠀⠀
⠀⠀
DIRECTIONS⠀⠀
1.Preheat oven to 200 degrees C* (fan)/400F.⠀⠀
2.Peel and slice sweet potatoes uniformly (you want a matchstick-style shape, as opposed to a wedge).⠀⠀
3.Place sliced potatoes in a large bowl, cover with water and place in refrigerator .⠀⠀
4.Drain and rinse the fries, then lay them out on sheets of paper towel to dry, blotting with more paper towel to remove remaining moisture.⠀⠀
5.In a large bowl, toss potato slices in corn starch to evenly coat.⠀⠀
6.Arrange potatoes on a greased sheet of baking paper on a baking tray. Do NOT over lap the fries. Don’t even let them touch each other. This is one of the crucial keys to a crispier “baked fry”.⠀⠀
7.Use an oil mister to evenly coat with oil.⠀⠀
8.Bake for around 10 minutes. 9.Remove tray from oven, turn fries and then bake for approximately another 15 minutes (until the edges are browning).⠀⠀
10.Season well/to taste. I used homemade rosemary-infused sea salt (recipe coming soon!) and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.⠀⠀
11.Serve immediately. Enjoy!
