the Ingredients

Row Sides 24
  • 3 sweet potatoes or jewel yams, each about 455 grams, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 120 milliliters plain Greek yogurt
  • 60 milliliters mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Special Equipment

  • perforated grill pan


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-low heat (about 180ºF) and preheat a perforated grill pan for about 10 minutes.
  • 02 Cut each sweet potato lengthwise in half, and then cut each half into 18-millimeter slices. In a bowl whisk the oil, salt, and pepper and add the potato slices. Toss to combine.
  • 03 Spread the potatoes in a single layer on the grill pan and grill over direct medium-low heat, with the lid closed, until quite tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 20 to 25 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and cool to room temperature.
  • 04 Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and mustard. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  • 05 Add the cooled potatoes and chives to the bowl with the yogurt mixture. Gently stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve chilled.
