I love salads but during the cold months, I tend to choose warmer salads and this is one of my favorites. You need this recipe if you’re looking for a great warm salad, π”Ήβ„π•Œπ•Šπ•Šπ”Όπ•ƒπ•Š β„π”Έβ„π•π”Όπ•Šπ•‹ π•Šπ”Έπ•ƒπ”Έπ”». It’s healthy, delicious and full of wonderful flavors & textures like roasted brussels, sweet potatoes, pumpkin seeds, cranberries & pomegranate arils. The pomegranate arils give this salad such a wonderful texture and a great pop of flavor.

I used murasaki sweet potatoes and highly recommend. The texture & flavor are wonderful but you can use your favorite type. I buy them from Trader Joe’s.

The dressing is tahini based with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. You can modify any ingredient to your taste and VOILA you got yourself a delicious salad. You can also add a protein for a complete meal. I’ve added a crispy herb salmon and chicken. They both tasted great but this recipe is is only for the salad. This also can easily turn into a vegan dish too, just add garbanzos or crispy tofu if you wish and omit the cheese. I hope you like this as much as we do.

Thank you for stopping by.
