Dice up sweet potato, roast in oven and let cool. I generally don't let it get too much colour/start to caramelise.
Slice some Spanish onion.
Put rocket, sweet potato, Spanish onion, pistachios into a bowl. Crumble or dice feta and put into bowl (I tend to use Danish feta). Dress with Paul Newman's honey mustard dressing (I think it's even a light one. I have made my own in the past, but I just can't be bothered any more). Toss, and you're done!
If you feel like adding to it, roasted beetroot is also amazing in it. Just dice it about the same size as the sweet potato.
Or I imagine you could subsitute the sweet potato with pumpkin, but my step father is allergic, so I've never tried it.

I'll follow, I need ideas, I have the IL's coming.
I'll be doing a roast and some roast veggies, the standard pasta salad and mixed greens salad, but I need some ideas for some side dishes and salads.
Preferably something that can be done or prepared before.
I did suppli (spelling?) the year before last when I hosted for a side they were awesome but I'm feeling a little too lazy this year.

I'm having christmas lunch early on Sunday and I'm starting to freak out a little! I'm still not 100% on the menu yet.
So far it's looking like-
Chorizo and rocket salad
Caesar salad or green salad (not sure yet)
Potato, egg and bacon salad
Fresh Prawns with seafood sauces
Bbq butterflied leg of lamb
Dinner will probably be a roast pork with homemade gravy and roast veg and left over dessert.
