Grilled Sweet Potatoes
2 pounds sweet potatoes
3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (including tender stembs)
1 teaspoon of lime zest or lemon zest
2 tablespoons of fresh lime or lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt
Prepare the grill, prep the sweet potatoes: Prepare your grill for hot, direct heat. 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.
Make cilantro lime dressing: Combine all of the dressing ingredients into a small bowl.
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.
Toss with dressing: Toss the sweet potatoes in a bowl with the dressing and serve hot.
