Simple Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Salad

 You've never had a salad that tasted so good. I'm serious. Not only is this salad healthy, it is also incredibly delicious and can be served as a side dish or eaten completely on its own. Sweet potatoes are a healthy way to consume carbohydrates and pomegranates are super good for your heart!


Recipe makes: about 6 servings


4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 cup of pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup feta cheese

For the dressing:

2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper or foil. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with olive oil and toss them until they are well coated. Season them with salt and pepper to your taste. You can also add a dash of dried rosemary if you'd like. Roast the potatoes for about 20-30 minutes, stirring them occasionally until they are tender. Remove from the oven and let them cool.

Once the potatoes have cooled, placed them in a large bowl with the pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds and feta cheese (you can leave out the cheese or use another cheese of your choosing).

To make the dressing, whisk together the pomegranate juice, red wine vinegar, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss.
