Autumn Sweet Potato Salad


I am a sucker for salads.Autumn Sweet Potato Salad - Tayler Silfverduk DTR - #autumnsalad #warmingsalad #wintersalad #kalesalad #saladbowl #thanksgivingsalad #tahinidressedsalad #vegansalad #glutenfreesalad #simplesalad #sweetpotatosalad #brunchsalad #glutenfree #saladrecipe #kalesaladrecipe #dietetics #nutrition #DTR #silfverduk #celiacsalad #celiacfriendly #celiacfriendlyrecipe #purplecabbage #sweetpotatoe #broccolisalad #curlykale

I enjoy them by the mixing bowl.

One of my favorite things about the fall and winter is the ability to add warm vegetables to my salads. It adds a texture and depth to my salad that doesn’t compare to raw salads.

This salad is one that I enjoy frequently during the colder months.

I’ve even been known to serve it during breakfast because the sweet potatoes and raisins mixed in with the rest of the vegetables and the tangy tahini dressing creates a sweet and savory salad. Which is perfect for breakfast/brunch.

Power up your salads with this recipe.

Whether you make it according to the recipe or you use it as inspiration for your own autumn and winter salads, I hope you thoroughly enjoy it as much as I did/do.

Pro-Tip:

Though not mentioned in the recipe – I am a firm believer that you should always massage your kale with extra virgin olive oil. Why? In my opinion, it makes for a softer and more enjoyable bite of kale. So show your kale some love and massage it with some oil.
