Hearty Kale Cranberry & Pecan Salad

You’ll need:

  • 1 head of kale, ripped into small pieces
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, diced & Roasted – I used a bag of pre-cut sweet potatoes from Trader Joes and roasted in the oven at 350 until brown
  • 1 large avocado cut into slices
  • 1/2 dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries as garnish – these are optional as they are used purely for looks, don’t eat them, they are extremely bitter!!
  • 1/2 cup pecans – you could also use slivered almonds or pumpkin seeds or a combination of all three!
  • Raspberry vinaigrette – I used store bought (Central Market brand if you are in Texas) or this recipe would be great!

In a large bowl layer all ingredients and drizzle liberally with dressing.

That’s it!

This salad looks fancy but it’s actually so easy to make!

Have it the day after thanksgiving and add shredded turkey on top! Delish!

*This recipe will serve 2 people as a dinner salad and 4 people as a side salad.
