Roast sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice sweet potatoes into small 1-inch squares and slice Brussels

sprouts in half. Toss Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes in 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and herb mixture. Add sweet potatoes and Brussels

sprouts to a greased baking sheet. Bake for 17-20 minutes, turning once halfway through baking, until softened. Toast walnuts: Add 1 teaspoon

of olive oil, walnuts, and a pinch of salt into a medium-high pan. Toast the walnuts for about 5 minutes until they become slightly

brown. Walnuts can burn easily so watch them closely. To make dressing: Whisk all ingredients together until fully combined. To assemble:

Toss the chopped kale into a large bowl with half of the dressing. Finally, add sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, roasted walnuts, and dried

cranberries into the salad bowl and top with additional dressing. Enjoy!
