Servings: 4


  • 3 sweet potatoes, skin on and sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the potatoes
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar, preferably Chardonnay
  • 2 tbsp capers, chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp whole-grain mustard
  • 1 cup scallions, sliced
  • ½ cup cup walnuts, toasted
  • 1 green apple, cored and julienned
  • 1 tbsp chives, sliced
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds, toasted
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh parsley and cilantro leaves, for garnish


  • Preheat a grill to medium heat.
  • Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper then coat with olive oil.
  • Grill the potatoes until caramelized, about 4 minutes on each side.
  • Place the potatoes on the top rack and close the grill for about 20 extra minutes so they finish cooking through.
  • Remove the potatoes from the grill and let them cool to room temperature.
  • To make the vinaigrette, whisk the vinegar, capers, honey, mustard, and olive oil together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Dice the potatoes into large chunks and mix in a bowl with the scallions and walnuts. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add enough vinaigrette to coat the salad.
  • Top with the apples, chives, sesame seeds, cilantro, and parsley and serve.
