Roasted Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Salad

 
Beautiful and festive roasted sweet potato, and pomegranate spinach salad with creamy Parmesan cheese, pecans, and tangy balsamic dressing! Perfect for the holidays.
 
 
 
 
I had never had a salad before that had sweet potatoes! When I went out to eat with my husband a few weeks ago, was my first experience and it changed my life! Okay, it didn’t change my life but it was incredible! It is a great mixture of sweet and savory and the flavors complement each other in the best way!
 
 
This would be a fabulous meal on its own or would be a great addition to any dinner! Enjoy!
