Warm Kale and Sweet Potato Salad with Turkey Sausage

This is a recipe I found on a fitness website.  I made it because I love the 3 main ingredients and it looked quick and easy to make.  Instead of using lemon juice and maple syrup to sweeten the dish, I simply added Papa Vince Extra Virgin Lemon Olive Oil and it was delicious!  It was so good, I had to share the recipe!

Preparation: 15 minutes, Cook Time:  15 minutes
Ingredients for 4 persons

4 sausages (I used turkey, you can use pork or veggie if you prefer)
2 cups of cubed sweet potato
4 cups of kale, torn into small pieces
1 red bell pepper (cut into small cubes)
1 tablespoon Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil
Papa Vince Sea Salt
Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Preparation
1.  Cook the sausages.  I prefer to grill and then cut them into small slices.
2.  Drizzle Papa Vince EVOO in a large skillet & place over a medium-high heat. 
Add the sweet potato cubes and stir until they start to sizzle.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pan so the sweet potatoes steam.  Cook for about 10 minutes until they are tender.
3.  Add the red bell pepper & cook for 2 or 3 minutes before you add in the kale.
4.  Stir all the ingredients together and season with Papa Vince Sea Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (just a pinch, if desired ... a little goes a long way)!
5.  Drizzle liberally with Papa Vince Lemon Olive Oil just before serving.

Traditional basil pesto, a well-known and well-loved Italian sauce, was the inspiration for this recipe. Its simplicity allows each ingredient to shine through and when crushed together, or pestare in Italian, creates a perfect balance of flavor.  I chose to pair it with radicchio which has some amazing health benefits including a boost to your immune system.
