Roasted Chicken and Veggie Salad Bowl

I love warm salad bowls during wintertime (and yes, we finally have cold weather and I think it’s here to stay!) Whenever I think of them, I think of snowy days, a crackling fire, and roast turkey. Anyone else?

Just me? Ok, that’s cool…

Anyways, salad bowls are my favorite dinner: they’re SO, SO easy to whip up (basically just raid your fridge, put everything on the counter, and dinner is served) If you’re feeling snazzy,you might even roast some veggies.

 

I roasted veggies today. I was feeling snazzy.

And I was feeling extra snazzy, so I added some chicken for my meat-loving little brother. (When he asked me what was for dinner and I replied “salad,” the look of disgust and disappointment of his face was too much, so I added “with chicken.” Funny how quickly a face can light up…)

And that’s how this recipe was born. And I’m so glad it was because I just might be living off of this salad for the rest of winter– and my life. Roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, and fresh avocados. Need I say more?
