WALNUT AND KALE SALAD WITH ROASTED SWEET POTATO

I cannot stop making this zingy salad! The maple roasted sweet potatoes, walnuts, kale, and balsamic dressing are such satisfying combination of sweet and sour. This nutritional combination provides a mix of complex carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals, supporting overall health, brain function, and immune system strength.
