Yacon and Blue Cheese Salad

by Ooooby Crew


Handful of shelled walnuts or pecans
Juice of 1 lemon
1 medium-large yacon
Handful of salad greens
180g blue cheese
For the dressing:
1 T balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste
3 T olive oil


Preheat the oven to 175. Spread the walnuts or pecans out onto a baking tray and toast in the oven for 8–10 minutes, until lightly coloured and fragrant. Fill a bowl with water and add the lemon juice. Peel the yacon, cut into slices and toss into the water to keep them from discolouring. Whisk vinegar and olive oil together with salt to taste. Distribute the salad greens amongst serving plates and arrange the sliced yacon on top, crumble over the blue cheese, then dress with the vinegar and oil. Scatter the nuts over the top and serve.
