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.

 

How to Make It

Heat oven to 425° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes, onion, 2 tablespoons of the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roast until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side.

In a large bowl, toss the warm potato mixture with the spinach, lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve with the chicken.

This was delicious. I also threw in some broccoli to the vegetable roast; married well in the salad.

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.

I couldn't believe how simple and yet delicious this was. Make sure you wilt the spinach enough if using regular spinach and not baby spinach. It is a hit with my family! Healthy and easy.

The flavor of the roasted sweet potatoes melded into the onions and then with the lime juice and chicken together....it just made a good combination. The presentation is lovely and food healthy...what can I say? I loved it. It would make a delightful luncheon with a slice of garlic bread and a lemon dessert.
