Kale Caesar Salad and Sweet Potato Fries

kale salad and sweet potato fries

My love of sweet potatoes and healthy alternatives continues with this delicious kale Caesar salad and sweet potato fries. At the start of this year, I made some healthy switches to my diet including regular potatoes to sweet potatoes. I wasn’t a big fan before, but now I love their sweet taste and when you crisp them up in the oven, they are addicting. (just see my sweet potato quiche recipe)

I found this recipe via Pinch of Yum and this is now a lunch/dinner staple at home.

The recipe I found adds sliced avocado on top of the Caesar, I included a protein instead. You could also do salmon or shrimp. I try to keep the grilled chicken in the fridge weekly as part of my meal prep to use on top of salads, on the side of pasta, or a quick quesadilla for lunch.

I highly recommend starting the sweet potatoes first. These will take the longest. I just toss them with a tablespoon of olive oil and bake until crispy at around 400/425. I started using this baking mat for cookies and now I use it for just about everything. It makes life so much easier to clean up.


For a little salty flavor, I like to add a little fresh shredded parmesan to the top of the kale salad. The recipe calls for mayonnaise but you can sub greek yogurt. This is what I use for my dressing. The dressing comes together quickly in my mini Cuisinart and I keep it in the fridge all week. Feel free to adjust the lemon/garlic ratio to your palate.



For the recipe, you can see it at Pinch of Yum.

If you make this recipe, I would love to hear how you enjoyed it!
