Winter Sweet Potato SaladSnap 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.
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
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.
