donna hay's toasted pine nut and sweet potato salad

Another day home alone, which has the benefits of being able to watch more, uninterrupted cycling (yay - Schlecks!), but with the downside I've done no shopping and dinner is going to have to come out of the bleak cupboards.

Fortunately there are a couple of tomatoes, as well as a third of a packet of spinach in the fridge. This doesn't bode particularly well until I hit the motherlode of two slightly dessicated sweet potatoes in the pan cupboard. With no pine nuts (Jesus! what kind of house is this?), I have to make-do with sunflower seeds instead - and bish bash bosh Donna Hay's toasted pine nut and sweet potato salad:

Ahh, smugosity and health in one plate, and it makes a change from the constant conveyer-belt of spaghetti with cherry tomato sauce.
