Grilled Sweet Potato Salad

Making the salad is pretty easy…just combine all of the ingredients…with the only step requiring any real work is getting the potatoes grilled.

Here is our recipe for grilled sweet potatoes with brown sugar with detailed preparation steps but in general the technique is as follows:

  • Peel the potatoes and slice into 1/2 inch thick rounds.
  • If desired, microwave the rounds for three minutes before grilling to speed up the cooking process.
  • Brush the potatoes with oil and grill over medium heat for 7-10 minutes per side until fork tender.

I actually found this recipe on another great blog – The Sweet’s Life.  As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew it was going to be something I was going to have to try, given my new found love of sweet potatoes.  And, wow – it didn’t disappoint!  In fact, it was so good that the next weekend, I purposely bought more sweet potatoes for Kevin to grill JUST so I could make this salad.  I plan on impressing quite a few parties with this new dish!
