  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the strawberries in a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes in a separate rimmed baking sheet; poke them with a fork all over to create small holes.
  4. Place the onions in a separate baking sheet (or if they fit on the sweet potato baking sheet- they can share!).
  5. Rub the strawberries, sweet potatoes and onions with the melted coconut oil. Place all three baking sheets in the oven and roast the strawberries for 10 minutes, the onions for 40 minutes and the sweet potatoes for 60 minutes. Remove them all from the oven at their times or when they are tender and fully cooked and set aside to cool, then scoop out the sweet potato flesh and discard the skins.
  6. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, tomatoes, apple, almonds, basil and orange zest.
  7. In a small blender, puree the roasted strawberries, banana and R.W. Knudsen Tart Cherry Juice. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Pour over the prepared salad mixture; toss to combine. Then add the onions and sweet potato flesh and drizzle with a little bit of freshly squeezed orange juice, if desired and serve immediately.
