Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toss yams with 2 tablespoons olive oil in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and arrange evenly onto a baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven until the yams are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cool to room temperature in the refrigerator.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion has caramelized to a golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Stir in the kale, cooking until wilted and tender. Transfer the kale mixture to a bowl, and cool to room temperature in the refrigerator.

Once all the ingredients have cooled, combine the yams, kale, red wine vinegar, and fresh thyme in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir gently.
