Baked sweet potato chips partner perfectly with this kale salad for an easy, healthy lunch option. Tossed together with pomegranate seeds and feta cheese in a tahini dressing, this kale salad make a great wintertime salad and gluten free meal.
- 2 sweet potatoes
- coconut oil (for cooking, or canola oil or peanut oil)
- ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- pomegranate seeds
- 3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1/2 lemon juice
- chili (cayenne, to taste)
- 1 bunch kale
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Sweet Potato Preparation:
- Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into thin slices using a mandolin.
- Mix the sweet potato slices in coconut oil, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with curry and pumpkin seeds.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Salad Preparation:
- Remove seeds from pomegranate.
- Prepare the salad dressing: In a small bowl, mix tahini, olive oil, rice vinegar, lemon juice, and cayenne chili together. If the mixture is not liquid enough, adjust the seasoning.
- Cut the kale leaves, taking care to remove the stem. Mix manually with half of the dressing in order to soften the kale. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
- To serve, place potatoes and kale salad on plate. Sprinkle feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, and remaining dressing on salad.

This salad has everything going for it! It has color, taste and texture and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. I serve it with a whole-wheat dinner roll and chilled glass of sparkling water.
