Roasted Sweet Potato & Kale Salad with Honey-Lemon Tahini Dressing

Nicolette Stramara


Simple meets satisfying in this flavorful – and nutritious – recipe. Lemon-massaged kale, crispy-tender roasted sweet potatoes and an easy-to-blend dressing are tossed together to create a salad that’s simple enough to make for lunch yet elegant enough for your dinner spread. In a fun alternative to standard vinaigrettes, this plant-based dressing gets its creamy texture and nutty-tangy taste from tahini, apple cider vinegar and honey. Try topping with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds or chopped nuts for a little extra crunch.Top View Sweet Potato and Kale Salad Drizzled with Dressing in White Bowl on White | Vitacost Blog
