Sweet potatoes, creamy avocado, and earthy kale make the perfect combination for a delicious, hearty, and healthy salad. The simple salad comes together in just a few minutes but will quickly become one of your favorites for a quick lunch or dinner. I like to prep the massaged kale and sweet potatoes on the weekend so that I can quickly make the salad during the week. You can add in any veggies you have at home, but I highly recommend including an apple or pear to add some sweetness and crunch to the salad. You could also toss in some fresh herbs, nuts, seeds, or dried fruit.
