“Ultimate Grilled Sweet Potato Salad”

Updated: Aug 2, 2020


Thats a big bowl of “AWESOMENESS”


Start with cutting the sweet potatoes into about 3/8″ plates


Oil both sides lightly with olive oil and put on the grill indirectly on Med-Low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes each side (depending on grill actual heat) until lightly seared


Take two ears of corn and boil them husks on (only way i do corn) about 15 to 20 minutes


Remove corn and set until cool enough to handle, cut the fat end and slide the bitches out (you’ll see they come out no hair or fuss)


Throw them on the grill on the lower rack with a little salt and pepper on’m with the heat on med for about three minutes per side until ya get some nice markings on’m. At the same time remove the Sweet potatoes…because they look GOOD


Slice off all that golden goodness and break it up and throw it in the largest bowl ya got…yer gonna need room here.


Fry up about 6 slices of bacon until semi crispy like so


dice it up in to little bitty pieces…not too itty bitty though


Dice up 1/2 a large red onion and a bunch of green onions and toss them in that bowl


Dice up a large red bell pepper…and you know it…toss it in…with a normal sized can of black beans (rinsed real good)


Dice up one large apple, ya dont gotta peel it or nuttin…and toss it in


Grab about that much Pecans, put’m in a zip lock


Smash’m up and toss them in…


Now it starts getting sweet…take a can of Mandarin oranges (or two or three whole ones), cut each piece in half and…yup…toss it in


Now get about 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro like so…and…toss it in


Heres where the good stuff comes in. This is where ya need to “Pay attention”…this shits separate so get another bowl…smaller of course…this is the sauce


take two of the biggest bitches in the can and place’m on a cutting board


Dice’m, slice’m and mush’m til they look like this and toss it in the side bowl…thats the sauce bowl…believe me…it makes a difference over tossing it right in the main bowl


Dice, slice and SMASH up 5 to 6 nice sze cloves of garlic (thats cilantro that was on the board…no big deal) and throw it in the sauce


Take a large lemon and zest the living shit out of it until its white (about a good heaping table spoons worth)…and toss it in the sauce bowl with two table spoons olive oil, apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar, cayenne pepper and what ever other shtuff was tagged “sauce”, mix it all up real good and let set at least 1/2 hour


Back to the main bowl…take all them nice charred potatoes and slice them up about 3/8″ to 1/2″ and toss them on the bowl and now ya can add the sauce…by the way, what ever bowl ya got…get another one because the easiest way to mix this shit is back and forth bowl to bowl…gettin’ full ain’t it.


Toss it until it looks like this.


And eat…you will NOT want to stop eating this stuff…and three potatoes makes a SHIT-LOAD of salad…like 6 to 8 people worth…heat is perfect and just all the flavor is CRAZY
