Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges with Mixed Herb Dressing
Continuing grilling week on Mad About Food with grilled sweet potato wedges with a mixed herb dressing. I am always looking for a side dish for my grilled meals that I can also make on the grill. Thankfully this simple, healthy recipe is the solution to that problem.
There is nothing worse than turning on your oven during a HOT summer day. I only do it if I am making a baked good. Being able to enjoy cookies or cake after all the sweating seems worth putting in the effort.
With these grilled sweet protato wedges with a mixed herb dressing your get the satisfaction of a baked sweet potato without having to heat up your oven!

I make these grilled sweet potato wedges with a flavorful spice blend so they are truly delicious on their own, but with the mixed herb dressing they are really spectacular. To make this herb dressing I went out to my herb garden and picked whatever looked good to me! That happened to be a little basil, cilantro and flat parsley.
You can basically use whichever fresh herbs you have or look best to you at the time. My favorite herb is flat parsley so if you only want to choose one that would be a good one to pick! Alternatively you could do some dill and lemon juice and leave the spice out.
Alternatively you can make these grilled sweet potato wedges without the mixed herb dressing! If you make them without an herb dressing and you are looking for a Whole30 sauce option, I recommend Primal Kitchen ketchup or barbecue sauces.
As you can see, you can pair these grilled sweet potato wedges with mixed herb dressing with pretty much anything. We have enjoyed them with grilled wings, grilled chicken breast, steak, seafood and even on a breakfast plate! Are you convinced that you can eat them with anything?
I need you all to know that the best thing you can do with these grilled sweet potato wedges is pop them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge. When they are cooked and then cooled potatoes are not only a resistant starch, but also the perfect texture and deliciously sweet.
Before making these grilled sweet potato wedges, make sure your grill is clean. I have said this several times in my grilling series, but it is important to have a clean grill in order for your food not to stick. Just use a simple grill brush and give it a good clean before heating it up.
So at this point I hope you are more than excited to make a batch of these grilled sweet potato wedges with mixed herb dressing. Grab 2 medium-large sweet potatoes and cut into wedges. If you are feeding a crowd, feel free to double this recipe!
Prep your spice mixture and brush the sweet potato wedges on both sides with avocado oil. Sprinkle wedges with the spice mixture. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
Place the sweet potato wedges on a warm grill and cook for 6 minutes on each side in a closed grill. Then move to the top rack and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove the sweet potatoes from the grill and prep the mixed herb dressing.
Chop the herbs and mix with olive oil and crushed red pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the potatoes and enjoy! Please find the full recipe down below! And keep an eye out for this grilling week to continue!!
