1/2 cup toasted almonds, roughly chopped
2–4 ounces feta cheese, drained (or goat cheese)
Olive oil
Sea salt and cracked pepper
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 450 °F. Slice fingerling sweet potatoes lengthwise in half. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Cut small tomatoes in half (medium tomatoes in quarters), drizzle with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat to 375 °, and add tomatoes to baking sheet. Bake another 10–15 minutes or until fingerlings are golden and fork-tender.
  • Whisk together the honey, vinegar, and olive oil, and set aside.
  • Make a layer of greens on two large plates. When veggies are finished roasting, add half of the potato wedges and tomato pieces to each plate.
