Do you have a yummy tried and tested kumara salad recipe? I have been asked to bring one on Christmas day and I have no idea where to start- overwhelmed by Google recipes.

I make one with kumera, can of chickpeas, spring onions, diced red pepper and a curry mayonnaise dressing. You can make it a day in advance too. I usually use 1 large kumera cut into chunks and steam. Forgot to add, it is also very nice if you use roasted kumera too.

Cut kumara into bite sized pieces and roast, add chopped red onion and mustard seeds before the end of cooking. After cooked add some chopped dried tomatoes and drizzel with a nice balsamic dressing. This is lovely served hot or cold.

I mix a couple of tablespoons mayo (real) with around a teaspoon of curry powder and about 1/2 tablespoon of wholegrain mustard, can put chopped walnuts in as well.

probably a bit late now, but I made this yesterday and everyone seemed to enjoy it .

500g kumara
2-3 sticks celery
1/2c roasted cashews or peanuts roughly chopped .
1/4 - 1/2c chopped dates
1/4c chopped fresh coriander

1/2c plain unsweetened yoghurt
1-2tbsp sweet mango chutney
1 clove garlic minced
1 tspn curry powder
1/2 - 1 tspn salt

Peel the kumara and cut into 2-3cm cubes. Boil gently until just tender. Stir dressing ingredients together and prepare remaining ingredients.

Place cooled kumara in a large bowl with celery, nuts, dates and coriander, reserving a little of the nuts and coriander to garnish. Drizzle with dressing and gently toss to combine. Garnish then serve, or refrigerate.
