  • Yield: Serves 4


Slice sweet potatoes into thin batons for these grilled sweet potatoes with pico de gallo, and then you can keep all the cooking outside instead of using the oven.


  • 11/2  pounds medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onions
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro plus more for serving
  • Juice of 1 lime


  1. Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Then cut those slices into 1/4-inch-wide batons. Toss the sweet potatoes olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  2. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Grill the sweet potatoes until they have grill marks and are tender in the middle, about 7-8 minutes per side.
  3. For the pico de gallo, combine the tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, cilantro, lime juice and remaining salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon the pico de gallo over the sweet potatoes and sprinkle with cilantro.
