INGREDIENTS – serves 2-4
1 small-med sweet potato, 1/4-1/2″ cubes
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (1 1/2c cooked)
3T olive oil (plus more for the dressing)
1/4t black pepper
1/4t garlic powder
1/4t red pepper flakes (or less)
2T white balsamic (sub reg balsamic)
3T olive oil
1/4-1/2c pomegranate seeds
3-4 thin slices red onion
4-6c fresh greens
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the sweet potato and chickpeas with 3T olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Spread them out on a parchment lined baking sheet then roast for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool a bit before adding them to the salad so they don’t wilt your greens.
Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together balsamic, maple, cinnamon and olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Assemble your salad, dump the greens in a large bowl or plate, top with sweet potatoes and chickpeas, pomegranate seeds and red onion then drizzle with the cinnamon maple dressing.
