Ingredients
  

For Salad

  • 6 cups spinach
  • 1/4 of a red onion , sliced
  • 4 fresh figs , quartered
  • 1/3 cup steamed or roasted edamame (I like roasted for the added crunch)
  • 1 medium sweet potato , chopped and roasted
  • 3 Tbsp crumbled blue, feta or gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/3 of a yellow bell pepper , chopped
  • 1/3 of a cucumber , sliced or chopped
  • ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Make at least two hours ahead if you can to allow the ginger to breakdown a bit.
  • Divide spinach into two plates. Layer with equal amounts of toppings and dressing. Sprinkle with plenty of fresh ground pepper and enjoy!

Notes

Tip #1: if you don’t feel like roasting edamame fresh, try @Seapoint dry roasted edamame ( the ingredients are just soy beans and salt!) They add a nice crunch and a pickup of protein to the dish
Tip#2: to cut down on roasting time for potatoes (or other veggies) in the hot months I microwave (covered and sprinkled with a bit of water , with holes poked in potato skin ) to cook 2/3 of the way (about 4 minutes for a medium to large potato). Then I brown on both sides on the stovetop in my cast iron pan. Still gets all crispy and flavorful!
