A little prep means this recipe is so easy to throw together in the morning, getting you fully set for work. Just roast your veg in advance, cook the freekeh and shake together the dressing the night before.

Ok, let’s get down to business because you all need to make this salad. I love this salad because it is SO easy and so fresh! I will start with the roast sweet potatoes which are pretty much my all time favorite food. Roasted sweet potatoes are better than candy if you ask me! Cut them into cubes, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and roast away! Sweet potato perfection!
