This beautiful salad is a great way to sneak in some extra vegetables and nutrients!  Our son is more inclined to eat it because of the little sweetness provided by the sweet potato and fruit. While we prefer to eat it as the main dish, it can also be served as a side. Simply dress with olive oil, salt and pepper!


1 small-medium sweet potato (chopped)

1/2 small red onion (cut into chunks)

1 large carrot (peeled and chopped)

1/2 Bartlett pear

1/2 c. sugar snap peas (chopped)

1/4 c. raw walnuts (pecans would work as well)

1/4 c. raw pumpkin seeds

1/4 c. dried cranberries

1 1/2 heads of kale (chopped)
