So, I’ve been eating sweet potato a little more recently and this white variety has such a subtle sweet taste and they aren’t as soft as the orangey ones. This recipe is super simple and you can pretty much add any seasonings and spices depending on what you like. This homemade chips are great alone or as a side dish and really compliment many flavours. Sweet potatoes are very nutritious, versatile foods that can be enjoyed in many ways. Sweet potatoes are known to be rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant known to help maintain appearance and skin, not only that but reduce age related cognitive decline.

Here is my take on the French Fry Salad. A much healthier version and full of colourful salads. This is a super simple but tasty recipe that you could enjoy for lunch or dinner. I made this meal for myself and did a little bit of each salad I had in the fridge along with 2 potatoes. I have included examples below of how I prepared my salad below but you can do your’s however you like.

1 sweet potato
1 white potato
Carrot – grated
Lettuce – finely sliced
Yellow pepper – finely diced

First thing is to prepare your salad, however you like (sliced, diced, chopped). Mix the salad together in a bowl and set aside.
Then, chop and wash the potatoes and allow to dry fully before frying in oil, drain off on a paper towel.
