Salad with grilled sweet potato and green asparagus

This original salad consists of grilled green asparagus and sweet potato, accompanied by fresh spinach, thyme and rosemary. The highlight of this salad is the delightful lime vinaigrette that adds a burst of flavour.


2 sweet potatoes, peeled
1 bunch of green asparagus
1 box of young spinach
½ peel of a salted lemon, finely cut
3 sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped leaves
3 sprigs of thyme, finely chopped leaves
1 clove of garlic
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 tsp icing sugar
8 tbsp olive oil (for drizzling)
