    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 40 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 60 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 600g sweet potatoes, cut into wedges

    • 2 tbsp olive oil

    • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika

    • 1 sweetcorn on the cob

    • bunch salad onions, trimmed and halved

    • 5 tbsp Greek yogurt

    • 1 lime

    • 1 tsp Tabasco, plus more to taste

    • 1 firm but ripe avocado, cut into 1cm slices

    • 440g quick cook turkey breast steaks

    • 130g bag watercress, rocket and spinach salad

    • 1 jalapeno chilli, finely sliced

    • 2 LoveLife seeded tortilla wraps, griddled


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. On a large baking tray, toss the sweet potato wedges with 1 tbsp oil; season and spread out. Sprinkle with the paprika and roast for 30 minutes, tossing halfway.

    2. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Put the remaining oil in a bowl. Rub a little oil over the sweetcorn, season and griddle for 15-18 minutes, until charred all over. Coat the salad onions in a little more of the oil and griddle around the corn for 3-4 minutes, until charred. Slice the corn kernels off the cob, then set aside with the salad onions.

    3. Mix the yogurt with the zest and juice of ½ lime, Tabasco and 1 tbsp water; season. Griddle the avocado slices for a minute on each side, turning carefully; set aside and squeeze over the remaining lime juice. Put the turkey in the bowl with the remaining oil. Season and griddle for 1-2 minutes on each side, then slice into strips.

    4. To build the salad, put the leaves on a large platter. Top with the sweet potato wedges, salad onions, sweetcorn, avocado, turkey and chilli. Drizzle over the dressing and serve with the tortillas, cut into wedges.
