Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Have you ever tried grilling sweet potatoes? It’s quick and easy. You just peel the sweet potatoes, slice them into 1/4-inch slices, paint them with olive oil, sprinkle on some salt, and place on a hot grill.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 3-4 Tbsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (including tender stems)
  • 1 teaspoon of lime zest or lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare the grill, prep the sweet potatoes: Prepare your grill for hot, direct heat.
  2. While the grill is heating up, peel the sweet potatoes and slice lengthwise, or on a diagonal, into 1/4 inch-thick pieces.
  3. Coat the sweet potato slices with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with Kosher salt.
  4. Make cilantro lime dressing: Combine all of the dressing ingredients into a small bowl.
  5. Grill the sweet potatoes: Once the grill is hot, lay the sweet potato pieces down onto the grill grates. Cover the grill and cook until each side gets some grill marks, between 3-6 minutes for each side, depending on how hot your grill is.
  6. Toss with dressing: Toss the sweet potatoes in a bowl with the dressing and serve hot.
