Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F (fan forced).

On a paper-lined baking tray add the sliced sweet potato, olive oil, smokey paprika, garlic powder, and salt, and toss together to coat.

Remove from the oven and set aside until ready to use.

 

Olive Oil Toasted Walnuts & Sage

In a fry pan add the olive oil, walnuts, and sage leaves, and fry on medium heat until the sage leaves are crispy.

Remove from the heat, sprinkle with flaky sea salt, and set aside.

 

Dressing

Add all dressing ingredients to a jar and shake to combine. Alternatively, mix using a whisk and bowl.

 

Salad

Arrange the radicchio leaves onto a large flat serving bowl.

Next, arrange the baked sweet potato over the radicchio.

Break the goat’s cheese into chunks and add over the top of the radicchio and sweet potato, with the olive oil toasted walnuts and sage.

Drizzle the salad with the dressing just before serving.
