Make 1 recipe of Maple Vinaigraitte Dressing
Remove kale leaves from stems and chop into bite size pieces. Follow by a good rinse and dry well. I use a salad spinner to speed up the drying process.
Once you have prepared Kale, add the Maple Vinaigrette dressing. About 2/3. This will allow the kale to tenderize. Let sit for about 30 minutes or as long as the rest of the prep takes. Set aside.
Peel the sweet potato and cut into bite size pieces. About 1 inch or so.
Place potato in bowl and add 1 tbsp oil, 1/2 tbsp brown sugar, pinch of salt. Toss well and place a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. You want these slightly brown but tender. If it cooks too long it will dry out.
Once cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool.
Assembling the salad
To finish the salad, add feta, raisins, quinoa, sweet potato, salt, pepper to the kale and toss. Taste it and add remaining dressing if needed.
