Roast Kumara Salad

"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."

    Brilliant salad- I made it with half kumera and half carrot as I didn't have enough kumera -- very nice and looked so inviting! So good. Forgot to give this 5 stars!!

    Very good! My sweet potato cubes got a lot browner and somewhat dried out, but I let it sit for a bit in the vinegar/olive oil before serving. I didn't have currents (is that the same as raisins, btw?) so used craisins (dried cranberries). Because I had a total of 400grams of sweet potato, I reduced the other things accordingly. Will be making this again!

    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


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
