Instructions
 

Make 1 recipe of Maple Vinaigraitte Dressing

    Quinoa

    • Cook quinoa to package directions. About 20 minutes.
    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees for roasting the sweet potato.

    Kale prep

    • 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.

    Sweet potato

    • 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.
