This week has been a long one! I was out of town for work and traveling wears me out. Plus, I missed Josh, my bed, and kitchen. I am happy to be home! My dad is visiting from Illinois this weekend. I am excited for some fun family time!
My brain is still pretty fried from the trip, so I don’t have a lot to say today, but try this salad-you will love it! The roasted sweet potatoes really make this salad. I like the sweetness and crunch of the apple slices too. I add a little red onion and feta cheese for extra flavor. I use fresh spinach, but a spring mix would be good too! Dress the salad with a balsamic dressing of your choice! Enjoy!
Oh, and some good news-I have a new gig! I am a recipe contributor for the website-Make and Takes. I posted my first recipe this week: Simple and Healthy Veggie Tostadas. I will be sharing a recipe once a month, so visit often. Make and Takes also has great craft and family fun ideas-so check it out!
Roasted Sweet Potato, Apple, and Spinach Salad
- Olive oil
- 1 large sweet potato peeled and chopped into cubes
- Fresh spinach
- 1 Granny Smith apple thinly sliced
- Red onion slices
- Feta Cheese
- Balsamic Dressing
1. On a large baking sheet toss the sweet potato cubes with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast the sweet potato cubes in a 400 F oven. Make sure you turn the sweet potatoes a couple of times while they are roasting. Roast until soft, about 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Prepare salad.
2. Place the fresh spinach on a plate. Add the roasted sweet potatoes, apple slices, red onion slices, and feta cheese. Drizzle with balsamic dressing. Enjoy!
