I’m reposting this recipe for Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Honey-Lime Ginger Dressing because I am entering this recipe in a contest with North Carolina Sweet Potatoes’ Blogger Recipe Contest. Now that the snow is melting I’m anticipating taking out our grill so we can start cooking outside. I was watching my neighbor last weekend grill out in his t-shirt with envy. This recipe is one of the first things that I’m going to make. I can’t wait.

I’m tired of the same old side dishes when we grill for dinner. We usually have corn and baked potatoes. Tonight I decided to try something new at least for myself. Part of the reason that I’m doing this project is that I get bored of cooking the same things over and over. I had a sweet potato and I knew I wanted to grill it so I did a quick search on the interweb and was inspired by this recipe at Bitchin Camero.
Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Honey-Lime Ginger Dressing
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices (cook several potatoes to serve more than one person)
- juice from half a lime
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 tsp honey
- ground chipotle chili pepper
- fresh ground pepper
- kosher salt
- chopped cilantro for garnish
Whisk together the lime juice, ginger, honey and fresh ground pepper for the dressing and set aside.
