Kale, Brussels Sprouts and Roasted Chili Sweet Potato Salad

Salads in the autumn and winter months are a great way to squeeze in lots of nutrition, especially if you’re baking cookies all winter long and need some refreshing food! 

Kale, Brussels Sprouts, and Roasted Chili Sweet Potato Harvest Salad

I tend to build salads around dressings and I found a Cilantro Lime Ranch dressing that was so delicious, I was excited to create a recipe around it.

Kale, Brussels Sprouts and Roasted Chili Sweet Potato Salad

I love roasted sweet potatoes in my salad and here, to complement the cilantro and lime flavors, I roasted them in olive oil and chili powder for a little heat. If you have a can of chipotle peppers, you could also toss the sweet potatoes with some of the sauce from the can!

Pomegranates give this salad a little winter flair, while the avocado, Cotija cheese, and pepitas tie all of the flavors together. I love the avocado, because it adds a creamy element in every bite.

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
