We’re inching towards fall, and you know what that means — a warm kale salad recipe like this Warm Kale, Apple, and Sweet Potato Salad!
If you’ve been a longtime fan of Do You Even Paleo, you know that wilted kale salads are among my favorite. Starting two years ago with a Warm Winter Kale and Delicata Squash Salad with Maple Vinaigrette, I’ve created a handful of warm kale salad recipes since. And I’m happy to add to the collection this winter season!
We slowly slipped into autumn a few days ago. I didn’t even realize it was the autumn equinox — I was photographing a wedding all day, so I was understandably preoccupied!
Right on cue, though, the weather turned chilly. Suddenly, I have to wear slippers around the apartment to keep my toes warm. Anyone else have ice-cold toes while the rest of you is toasty?
So, now that it’s fall, let’s get to this salad.
Oooh, gosh, what a salad. We start with wilted kale, then add roasted sweet potatoes, pan-fried chicken breast, chopped granny smith apples, carrot ribbons, and slivered almonds.
Loaded, right? But this kale, apple, sweet potato salad gets even better, because then you’ll slather the whole thing in a creamy sunbutter dressing to really bring home that warm fall flavor.
Unlike my previous fall harvest salads, this one includes chicken to round it out as a full meal. With the amount of prep that goes into these roasted salads, it just makes sense to throw in some protein to make it an easy, nourishing meal.
