Quinoa Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Kale, Dried Cranberries & Red Onion

Quite a while back, I came upon a recipe on Two Peas & Their Pod where every part of the recipe name spoke to me.  This is that recipe.  In years past, I would have snubbed my nose at it because I've never been a big fan of sweet potatoes.  That is until my latest pregnancy.  I couldn't eat enough sweet potatoes. It's happened to me with each of my pregnancies.  My first I fell madly in love with chili and crunchy Cheetos (I passionately hated both before) and my second I became the biggest connoisseur of Powerade on the planet.  Well, this one was sweet potatoes.  I'm so glad it was, too.  Otherwise, not only would I have missed out on the awesomeness that is Rumbi's Sweet Potato fries, but I would have missed out on this incredibly delicious recipe, too!  

Not only is it beautiful to look at, but it's my new favorite go-to meal!  Protein packed quinoa. Healthful-filled roasted veggies. Sweet and tangy balsamic vinaigrette.  It's like a symphony in your mouth with every bite!

Don't just take my word for it.  Go make it yourself.  You'll thank me for it.  Promise!!!  Thank you Maria & Josh for allowing me to use your photo and highlight your amazing recipe on my blog too!  It's just too good to keep it a secret from anyone!
