Ingredients

Salad:
  • 1 kg sweet potatoes (about 4)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • pinch salt
  • 6 green onions
  • 1/3 cup crumbled soft goat cheese (chèvre)
Sherry Dijon Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • pinch each salt and pepper

Method

Sherry Dijon Dressing: In bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Salad: Using fork, prick sweet potatoes all over. Microwave on high, turning once, just until slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Cut into scant 1-inch wedges; toss with 2 tsp of the oil and the salt. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender and grill-marked, 10 to 12 minutes.

While sweet potatoes are grilling, toss green onions with remaining oil. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until softened, about 4 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; trim and cut into thirds.

Transfer potatoes to serving dish. Sprinkle with green onions and goat cheese. Drizzle with dressing.
