Grilled Sweet Potato and Yam Salad

The flavors of cumin, lime juice and cilantro really spark this beautiful salad. A fantastic way to add these nutritional vegetables to your summer menu.


2 medium sweet potatoes

2 medium yams

1/4 cup olive oil


1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 scallions, chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


In a large pot of water, boil potatoes and yams about 15 minutes until just becoming fork tender. Drain and let cool.
In a small bowl whisk together oil, honey, salt and cumin. Peel potatoes and yams and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Brush both sides of potatoes and yams with some of the oil mixture, reserving remainder.
Grill or broil potatoes and yams on each side until beginning to brown. Arrange on a large platter. Whisk lime juice into reserved oil mixture and drizzle over grilled vegetables. Sprinkle with scallions and chopped cilantro. Can be served at room temperature or chilled.
