Grilled Sweet Potato Salad

I’m really proud of myself for making something so pretty and delicious.  This is a simplified recipe from a book I checked out from the library, and is super quick and easy to do if you are having a BBQ and need a quick side dish.
The ingredients you will need (the quantities depend on how many people you are feeding):
  • Sweet potatoes – sliced into 1/3- 1/2″ pieces
  • Onion- thinly sliced
  • Cheese – a crumbly mild one (I used feta)
  • Cilantro- fresh and finely chopped
  • Lime juice
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper
To prepare:  Slice the sweet potatoes and brush with olive oil, then sprinkle on the salt and pepper and set aside.  Slice the onions so they can be thrown on the grill too!  Have cilantro, cheese and and lime ready.
To cook: Place the sweet potato on upper rack of the grill and let cook for about five minutes on both sides or until the BBQ marks are present.  The onions only need half of that time so add then when you flip the potatoes.  Also check to make sure the sweet potatoes are soft.  Place potatoes and onions in a large shallow bowl then drizzle lime juice and toss.  Then add cilantro and cheese on top!  Easy peasy!
