3Transfer to a parchment lined baking tray and spread them out evenly.

7Wash your mixed lettuce greens and peel and slice your avocado.

8Prepare your tahini salad dressing as per our tahini salad dressing recipe by adding all the ingredients to a measuring jug and then whisking it up with a hand whisk.

9When the sweet potatoes are cooked assemble the plates of salad with salad greens on the bottom, then the black bean and cilantro mix, then some sweet potato slices, avocado slices and top with a drizzle of tahini dressing.
