Grilled Sweet Potato Salad


  • 4 sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/4” rounds
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 5 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
  • 6 green onions
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


Preheat grill to medium high heat, about 375-400 degrees F.
To a large bowl add sliced sweet potatoes and drizzle with canola oil. Toss to coat.
Place sweet potato slices directly on the grill and grill each side for 4 minutes.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking, place green onions directly on the grill. Grill each side for 2-3 minutes, until slightly charred. Remove from grill and roughly chop.
Once the sweet potatoes are charred and cooked through, remove those from grill and place in a large bowl.
To that same large bowl add charred green onions and bacon. Set aside.
Right before serving, to a small bowl add minced garlic clove, whole grain mustard, dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine everything.
Drizzle the dressing over the sweet potatoes and gently toss to coat all the potatoes. Serve.
