Kale and Sweet Potato Salad

Hello Readers,
Happy New Year! Today I want to share with you one of my favorite salads, I love trying new veggies and recipes so if you want to mix it up in the kitchen give this a try.

If you have never tried kale before it is on the bitter side but you can jazz it up and that's what I'm about to show you.

Sweet potatoes, raw pumpkin seeds, lemon and kale

chop sweet potatoes drizzle on one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil  and roast for 50 minutes @ 450 degrees in a covered pan be sure to check halfway through and turn

toast the raw pumpkin seeds over medium heat for 8 to 12 minutes watch closely you don't want to burn them

while your potatoes are roasting and your seeds are toasting :)
clean, chop and rinse the kale remove the ribs of the kale

I used white balsamic vinegar and the juice of a lemon to flavor the kale about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

sweet potatoes are roasted just add a little salt and pepper to taste I love them crispy

if you choose to you can also wilt the kale in veggie broth to decrease the bitterness, just simmer 1/2 cup of broth in a saucepan and add kale for about 2 minutes and then add salt and pepper to taste

assemble the goodies
kale, toasted pumpkin seeds, sweet potatoes and I also used chopped dates it's a nice flavor to add to the salad

Thanks for stopping by have a great day!
