These pork meatball salads are fresh and interesting. The peach and radish salsa adds a flavoursome twist!
The pork meatballs are coated in sesame seeds, adding extra texture and flavour.
Roasted kumara bulks out the salad and helps to fill you up, while grated parmesan and the peach and radish salsa add punchy flavours. Yum!
Canned peaches make this a handy meal for all seasons, but if fresh are available feel free to use these instead.
Finish off the salad with a drizzle of creamy honey mustard dressing.

These pork meatball salads feature sesame coated meatballs, roasted kumara to fill you up, and a flavoursome peach and radish salsa, all drizzled with creamy honey mustard dressing.
PREPARE KUMARA AND MEATBALLS
Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF) fan bake and line two oven trays with baking paper. Peel kumara and cut into 2cm / 0.8in pieces. Place on one of the prepared trays, drizzle with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer.
In a large bowl, combine pork mince, parmesan, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
At this point, place kumara in oven to cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, shape tablespoons of the pork mixture into approximately 24 meatballs. Dip in the sesame seeds to coat and arrange on the second tray. When kumara has cooked for 15 minutes, add meatballs to oven (above kumara) and bake for 15-20 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through and kumara is golden and crisp around the edges.
While meatballs and kumara cook, finely dice radishes, drain peaches (reserving some of the juice for the dressing) and chop into small pieces, and finely slice spring onions. Place in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Divide rocket between individual serving plates.
Whisk all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Arrange kumara and meatballs on top of rocket. Spoon peach salsa over the top. Roughly tear basil and scatter over salads. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with parmesan.
WINE MATCH: A Sauvignon Blanc.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: This meal is naturally gluten-free.
INGREDIENT SWAPS / NOTES: Pork mince can be swapped for chicken or turkey mince. You could use 2-3 fresh peaches instead of canned, if available.
STORING AND REHEATING: Store kumara and meatballs together and reheat in the microwave. Assemble salad and add dressing just before serving.
