Ingredients

Scale

salad:

  • 2 cups salad greens ( I like to combine two different types in my salads for more texture and “lift”)
  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled

balsamic vinaigrette:

  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp. cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

salad:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut sweet potatoes into rounds and then in half so that you get wedges. Toss with 1 tbsp. of avocado oil plus salt and pepper. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes until they are tender.
  2. Meanwhile cook quinoa according to package directions.
  3. Add greens to a bowl along with cooked quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, blueberries, almonds, and feta.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for the dressing until well combined. Drizzle over the bowl and enjoy1
