Wash and peel sweet potato and chop into small-diced pieces. Toss in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 20-30 mins until golden. Allow to cool before adding to mixed greens.

Toss mixed greens, cucumber, celery and almonds together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and store salad. Mix lemon juice and macadamia oil together in a small container and refrigerate.
