Who'd have thought you could make sweet potato salad on the grill? Whether you're looking for a dish to add to your collection of easy salad recipes for potluck parties, or you just can't get enough of those sweet potatoes, this recipe is a must-have!

What You'll Need

  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 cup bottled light red wine vinegar-and-olive oil dressing
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat (350 degrees to 400 degrees F.). Coat both sides of sweet potato slices with cooking spray.
  2. Grill potatoes, covered, 6 minutes on each side or until tender. Cool slightly, and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  3. Combine potatoes, bell pepper, scallions, and parsley in a large bowl; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing, basil, and balsamic vinegar. Pour over potato mixture and toss well.


Bottled dressing is enhanced here with chopped basil. You'll want to dress the potatoes while they're still warm so that they can absorb the tangy flavor.
