    What Ingredients are Needed for a Harvest Bowl (Sweetgreen Dupe)?

    Kale: Shredded kale with the stems removed.

    Sweet Potatoes: One whole sweet potato, cooked in the microwave for ease, and then chopped into bite-sized pieces.

    Wild Rice: Cooked then chilled wild rice.

    Apples: One medium apple of your choice, I used a gala apple.

    Goat Cheese: I used a block of goat cheese that I lightly crumbled into the salad, or you can use a pre-crumbled goat cheese.

    Almonds: Raw sliced almonds, slivered almonds, or chopped whole almonds.

    Balsamic Vinaigrette: Opt for a creamy balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

    Chicken: Roasted or grilled chicken. For ease and time saving, opt for a pre-cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken. If you want to cook from raw, you can bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees or saute in the skillet until cooked through.
