Kale & Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Maple Vinegarette
 
Ingredients
  • 1 large sweet potato, cleaned & cubed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • sprinkle pepper
  • 1 bunch kale, washed, remove stem, torn into bite sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp high quality extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp sea salt or more to taste
  • 1 or 2 tbsp unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 or 2 tbsp unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • juice from half a lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cube cleaned sweet potatoes and lightly coat in olive oil, salt and pepper and place on baking sheet. Roast in oven until soft (about 25mins).
  3. While sweet potatoes are roasting, in a large salad bowl massage 2 tbsp high quality oil into kale until the kale softens up. Sprinkle with ¼ tsp sea salt (or more to taste) and massage again until salt is well blended. Set aside.
  4. Make dressing (easy!) in a small bowl by whisking together balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and lemon juice until combined.
  5. Once sweet potatoes are cooked, you can either let them cool completely or serve them warm on top of the kale. Both are delicious! Sprinkle pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and dressing on top of salad, toss and serve immediately. Left overs can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days.
