Cilantro vinaigrette:


  • Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot of water. Boil the potatoes until they are just cooked through, about 20 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a cutting board and let rest until they are cool enough to handle.
  • Preheat the grill to HIGH heat. Lightly grease the grill.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice them into ¼-inch rounds. Brush the round with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the sweet potatoes on the grill and cook about 2 ½ minutes per side, until they have browned grill marks.
  • Transfer the grilled potatoes to a serving platter and drizzle with the dressing. Serve.

The vinaigrette:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, cilantro, olive oil, garlic, agave nectar and salt.
