Grilled Sweet Potatoes


2 pounds sweet potatoes

3-4 Tbsp olive oil

Kosher salt

Dressing:

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon of lime zest or lemon zest

2 tablespoons of fresh lime or lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

Pinch of salt

While the grill is heating up, peel the sweet potatoes and slice lengthwise, or on a diagonal, into 1/4 inch-thick pieces. Coat the sweet potato slices with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with Kosher salt.  Combine all of the dressing ingredients into a small bowl.  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.  Toss the sweet potatoes in a bowl with the dressing and serve hot.

Yield: Serves 4.
