Kale and Roasted Vegetable Salad

Ingredients

Serves 4
1⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 T honey
1 clove garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
1 beet, peeled and cubed
1 red onion, quartered
6 ounces of baby kale (about 7 cups)
2 avocados, chopped
1 cup blueberries
1⁄2 cup toasted chopped walnuts
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about 1⁄2 cup)

Preparation

Dressing: Add vinegar, honey, 1⁄2 cup oil, garlic, salt, and pepper to jar; shake well to combine.

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven, and heat to 425 degrees. Spread the sweet potato, beet, and onion on a rimmed baking sheet, and toss with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until tender and lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

Add the kale, sweet potato, beet, onion, avocado, blueberries, walnuts, and goat cheese to a large bowl, drizzle with dressing, and toss to combine.
