Sweet Potato and Apple Autumn Lentil Kale Salad


I am obsessed with kale salads. Not only are they delicious, but they’re super filling and perfect for meal prep (especially with the addition of lentils). Kale is super absorbent, so the dressing soaks right in, making this salad taste even better the longer it stays in the fridge!


Sweet Potato and Apple Autumn Lentil Kale Salad

You’ll need (for ~4 servings):

  • One bunch dino kale, with leaves stripped from the stems
  • One cup lentils, cooked
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 honeycrisp apples, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt/Pepper

Step One: 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice sweet potato and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper and roast for ~20 minutes.

Step Two: 

  • Make the dressing by combining the olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper.

Step Three:

  • Massage (yes, literally massage) the kale with the dressing until the kale is soft.

Step Four: 

  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven. Combine sweet potatoes, cooked lentils, apples, walnuts, and goat cheese and toss to mix.
