This fall salad features a wonderful mix of flavors and textures ideal for preparing for packed lunches or for a weeknight dinner. The curry powder-spiced sweet potatoes become sweet and their edges become crisper while they roast, which creates a wonderful contrast to the fresh kale and toasted coconut flakes. Instead the flakes, you can use coconut chips, which are a snack food made from large strips of coconut that are baked until crispy. Some chips come already toasted, but if yours are not, toast them by cooking them in a skillet over medium heat, stirring often, about 4 minutes.
