    For the salad: Use a mandolin slicer or very sharp knife to thinly slice the sweet potato then cut it into very thin strips. Soak in cold water, and change the water 2 or 3 times to remove the starch. Drain and dry with a kitchen towel.

    Heat up the oil in a frying pan and add the thin strips of sweet potato, stirring them around with a fork for a few minutes, until they change color. Drain excess oil on a paper towel.
