  • 1/3 cup sweet potato spirals (lightly fried in coconut oil until golden and salted)
  • ½ cup dressing

  4. Add avocado and hummus
  5. Top with sweet potato curls
  6. Add dressing

Dressing: 

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup cashews (soaked in water for 1 hour)

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Fresh parsley
  • water

Directions:

  1. Drain the liquid from the cashews
  2. Add everything but the water in a high powered blender and blend well. Then slowly add in water until it is thin enough to drizzle over salad

*to roast kale take leaves off the stem. Tear into smaller pieces. Toss with a few drizzles of olive oil and salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-8 minutes or until edges are slightly crispy.
