1. To make the roasted sweet potatoes: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Mix the sweet potatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper until well coated. Pour onto the baking sheet and roast for approximately 20 minutes or until they’re softened, but not too soft. Mix midway through roasting time if necessary. (This can be done a few days in advance.)
3. Combine all dressing ingredients in a small container and blend with an immersion blender. (Yields approximately 1 cup dressing. This keeps in the fridge for at least a week.)
4. Layer veggies in a salad container in the order listed, along with the roasted sweet potato cubes. Add a very small container of dressing on top and a very small container of protein of your choice.
You can swap any of the ingredients with those of your choice, and/or add corn, shredded carrots, zucchini, radishes, scallions, sprouts, etc. The more color, the more appealing, and the more vitamins the salad has.
