Roast Kumara Yummo Green Mayo Salad


1.2kg kumara yummos

3 (500g) red onions, cut into wedges

2 spring onions, finely sliced

250g smokey belly bacon, chopped

2 – 3 sticks celery, finely chopped

Fresh herbs – we used chives

Green mayo dressing

¾ cup mayo

½ cup packed herbs – basil, parsley

and mint

1 small clove of garlic

3 T sour cream

Green mayo dressing

Blend the mayo with the herbs, garlic and sour cream.  Season.


Toss the onions in olive oil and salt, roast for 30 minutes at 180 °C,  or until cooked and slightly caramelised. Toss the yummos in olive oil and salt, roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until tender. Cool.

Fry the bacon until crispy, remove from heat and drain on paper towel. Mix the yummos with the roast onions, spring onions, bacon, celery and half the dressing. Season to taste and adjust with a little white vinegar if needed. Drizzle the other half of the dressing over the top of the salad and finish with chopped herbs. Serve.
