Roasted Sweet Potato Kale Salad Bowls with Apples and Blue Cheese

Winter salad bowls never looked or tasted so good when you season and roast sweet potatoes and add them to bowls of chopped kale, red apples, blue cheese, and shredded carrots, then drizzle with balsamic and fresh cracked black pepper.
