Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with coconut oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer, and roast for 30-40 minutes, flipping half-way through. Allow to cool slightly.

Toss apple and lemon juice in a small bowl.

In a large bowl combine spinach, pomegranate  and apple. Add roasted sweet potatoes,  and toss with the desired amount of dressing. I just used some freshly squeezed lime juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
