Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Toss the yams with 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and arrange evenly onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until the yams are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool to room temperature in the refrigerator.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion has caramelized to a golden brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in the kale, cooking until wilted and tender. Transfer the kale mixture to a bowl, and cool to room temperature in the refrigerator.
  4. Once all the ingredients have cooled, combine the yams, kale, red wine vinegar, and fresh thyme in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and gently stir to combine.

I joined allrecipes.com just so I could rate this incredible recipe. I made it exactly as printed and I will make it again and again! Yam and kale are big favorites in our home, but we haven't put them together until now. Delicious!

Delicious, and made even better, in my opinion, by adding a liberal amount of crumbled goat cheese on top when serving. I did it to add protein so as to make this salad a complete dinner, but found that it added an amazing depth of flavor to the whole combination.

My family did not like this that much, but I loved it enough not to care. I used packaged, torn kale which is usually tougher and more bitter so I will try again maybe with a different green hoping to make them like this. I could not get enough-and the kids did pick out the sweet potato and ate it so it wasn't a total flop (yes, I do know there is a difference between yam and sweet potato but I don't think the difference is enough to search out the yams instead of using a sweet potato:-) ).
