Sweet Potato, Avocado and Spinach Spring Salad

If the first few sunny days of spring are any indication it is going to be a lovely summer. And how I love summer. When I think of spring and summer I think of salads, smoothies, banana ice-cream and long, balmy evenings down the river. This salad is a perfect spring fusion of the wintery roasted sweet potato and summery avocados and cucumber. It is full of vibrant colours, also like spring, plus the added textured crunch of pepitas (pumpkin seeds). It is simple and easy to prepare and tastes utterly fabulous!
