    1. Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss diced sweet potato pieces with a few swirls of olive oil and cumin, chili powder, nutmeg, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Spread on a large baking sheet and roast, stirring occasionally to achieve an even crispiness, for 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside.
    2. Whisk lemon juice, tzatziki, and water together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss greens with pumpkin seeds, thin apple slivers, pomegranate arils, celery, and sweet potato. Drizzle tzatziki dressing over salad and top with fresh mint and cracked black pepper.
    3. Enjoy!
