Prick the sweet potato all over with a knife wrap in kitchen towel and microwave for 3 minutes.
In a salad bowl pop a handful of salad leaves and as many halved cherry tomatoes as you want. I like yellow ones that are available all year round now not just in summer.
In a little bowl add a glug of balsamic, lemon juice (optional), maple syrup and salt/pepper to taste.
If your sweet potato is done, a large potato may take another minute or so, then peel and cut into cubes toss in a little butter and 1tbsp of maple syrup.
Now scatter the sweet potato on top of your salad leaves pour over a few tbsp of the dressing and consume with delight!
