For the salad

  • 3 large Sweet potatoes
  • 1 Red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 Red onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp Avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Chopped fresh cilantro

For the dressing:

  • 3/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 med Vine ripened tomatoes cut into quarters
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 tsp Liquid smoke
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a propane grill or charcoal grill to medium high heat. Cut sweet potatoes into chunks. Slice the bell pepper into strips, and the red onion into chunks.
  • Toss the vegetables with oil.
  • Using a grill basket or foil packs, place the veggies on the grill. Grill for 10-12 minutes, tossing a few times, and remove once the potatoes are softened. Let cool for a few minutes.
  • Dice up the veggies and mix together in a large bowl
  • Make the dressing by blending all the ingredients together for about 30 seconds (except the oil), or until tomatoes are completely liquified.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of dressing to the salad and toss to coat the vegetables.
  • Add chopped fresh cilantro and sprinkle with salt to taste.


*I like to make double batches of dressing to use for the next week!
