Signature Salad with Roasted White Sweet Potato and Spicy Wasabi Peas May 19, 2014

Jamie says: On my Superwoman Saturday, I made this Signature Salad with Roasted White Sweet Potato and Spicy Wasbi Peas. I’m calling it a Superwoman Saturday because I like the alliteration and I really jam-packed a ton into my one-day weekend. Plus, Superwoman needs to eat super tasty super foods, like those in this salad, to rock her day…
