Finally! We’re getting in to fresh produce season! Not that I mind all of the comfort food that fall and winter brings, but you just can’t beat a fresh homemade salad. And this one includes the perfect “cross-over” ingredients.
- 2 cups of arugula
- 1/2 of a sweet potato, quartered
- 1/2 can of beets
- 1/3 cup walnuts
You can mix together our lemon-y salad dressing, or make the dressing below.
- Apple cider vinegar
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Set your broiler to high. Toss the quartered sweet potato in olive oil and a dash of salt. Spread it out evenly on a cooking sheet and stick it under the broiler until it begins to soften and brown, approximately 10 minutes. (This is the same way you can make sweet potato fries. Just cut them thin instead of quartered.) When the sweet potato is just about done, throw in the walnuts to get them warm and slightly toasted.
In a salad bowl, throw together the arugula, beets, and warm sweet potato and walnuts. Toss with the dressing and enjoy.
Happy Eating, XO.
