Colorful and packed with flavor, this Sweet Potato & Apple Quinoa Salad with Maple Dressing makes a healthy dinner for any night of the week.
Are you in full Fall mode like me? I’m still waiting for cooler weather to arrive here in Florida, but I’ve been willing it to come by making everything apple, pumpkin and butternut squash.
Over the Summer I discovered quinoa salads and have been making them on a regular basis. The quinoa adds a nice texture and makes the salad much more filling. You can add pretty much anything you have in the house!
For this quinoa salad, I started by roasting sweet potatoes and apples. Aren’t they beautiful? They add so much flavor to this dish but are also what make it so colorful and pretty.
The sweet potatoes make this salad even more filling and nutritious. The apples add just a little bit of sweetness.
Next, I sauteéd the roasted sweet potatoes and apples in olive oil and drizzled with real maple syrup. This makes a delicious dressing for the salad.
I combined everything I just sauteéd in a big bowl with fresh spinach leaves and feta cheese. There is so much to love about this salad!
So there you have it. A super simple, delicious, all-in-one meal for Fall. It was a hit at my house and I know it will be at your house, too!
