Easy, healthy and amazing texture! The mixture of sweet potatoes, onions, lime and spinach was outstanding. Had 2 servings left over and it was very good served cold for lunch the next day.
Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potato Salad
Tossing the warm roasted vegetables with fresh spinach gently wilts and tenderizes the greens. In place of sweet potatoes, try butternut squash, rutabaga, carrots, or parsnips. This heart-healthy salad also pairs well with fish or lean beef.
