    VLizzle's Note:

    Adapted from Vegetarian Times 2005 Grilled sweet potatoes require close attention – but the results are worth it. Slice them too thick, and they won’t cook through; slice them too thin, and they will char quickly. Slice carefully and keep an eye on the grill.

      This is a great way to serve sweet potatoes. We had them last night with "Thai Grilled Chicken Thighs". Fabulous! Great flavors and that simple vinaigrette - super! Had no cilantro left (it all went into the Thai grilled chicken marinade), so I used basil instead. Lovely! This will be a keeper!

      LOVED THIS SALAD! Made this on my neighbor's grill, using yams rather than sweet potatoes, but otherwise stuck to your recipe! Wonderful blending of flavors, & I particularly enjoyed the makeup of the vinaigrette! Thanks much for posting such a recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
