Winter Sweet Potato Salad

Snap Fitness

Salads shouldn’t be saved for warm weather, they’re equally delicious in the winter, too! And with the frequent cookies and treats this time of year, I think it’s a good idea to have a salad every single day. This Winter Salad covers all of the flavor bases - it’s spicy (arugula) and sweet (roasted sweet potatoes), creamy (goat cheese) and crunchy (pine nuts) - pair with chicken breast or a fried egg for an extra boost of protein.

 

Ingredients:

2 medium sweet potatoes

1 Tbsp + 1/4 cup olive oil

1 small shallot, minced

1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard

1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar

salt & pepper

2 7-oz bags of arugula

4 Tbsp pine nuts

4 oz goat cheese

 

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces and drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil.

Season with salt and pepper and roast until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes, flipping half-way through. Set aside.

Whisk together shallot, mustard, vinegar, salt & pepper and remaining olive oil.

Layer arugula, sweet potatoes, pine nuts and goat cheese and drizzle with dressing.
