READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by I'mPat

Love Kumara and Sweet Potato and this sounds like a very flavoursome recipe from Recipe+ As we are not fond of coriander I would use sweet basil.

Fantastic salad! We want to give more than5 stars for this very yummy salad. Made just as written. Lovely blend of flavours and textures. This was a great salad. The fennel, coriander, pine-nuts and currants were a really great combination with the roasted kumera. I almost left out the currents....but glad that I did add them in. This is a salad that we will be making again. Photo also to be posted. Reviewed for PAC March 2012
