Move over traditional potato salad... Try my Grilled Sweet Potato Salad recipe! It's a simple vegan grilling dish you'll love.
Did everyone have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend? I spent mine in Pittsburgh celebrating the hub's sister's wedding. It was such a lovely event. I'll be sharing some highlights and photos tomorrow. Keep reading for a fabulous giveaway!
Remember the summer kick-off party I threw? What a great time! I'm still dreaming about all the yummy food.
Well, one of the new recipes I made for the party turned out so well I just had to share it with you guys. Turn your attention front and center to that lovely Grilled Sweet Potato Salad!
My Grilled Sweet Potato & Black Bean Salad recipe is a unique combination of flavors that is sure to impress at your next party. I got everything for this Grilled Sweet Potato Salad (and the entire party!) at ALDI.
Why have I been all about ALDI? Because they have quality food for a fraction of the price of other stores. It's a no brainer. Shopping there is fast, easy and convenient, too!

For this recipe the SimplyNature Organic Black Beans, sweet potatoes and red peppers play off each other perfectly. When I'm at ALDI I always watch for their own special brands like SimplyNature because I know it will be free of artificial colors, flavors and unnecessary enhancers. I'm also so impressed by the selection of produce they carry. There are always great organic produce options, as well.
To make this Grilled Sweet Potato Salad, you start by grilling big sweet potato slices and red pepper.
You want the sweet potatoes to cook until tender.
The red peppers just need a nice char. It's better if they are still a little crunchy.
After grilling, chop the sweet potatoes and red peppers into bite sized chunks and toss the veggies with other yummy-ness like black beans, green onions, lime and cilantro. This delightful vegetarian grilling recipe is only 6 ingredients, so it's perfect if you are in a hurry. It's vegan, too!
The end result was the star of my cookout menu.
My Grilled Sweet Potato Salad recipe tastes great, but it's also a healthy choice because of the added SimplyNature Organic Black Beans for protein. The colorful sweet potatoes and other veggies are filling and packed with vitamins.
You could easily make this as a side dish like I did or even a vegetarian or vegan main course during the week. It's that filling and delicious!
Serve warm or store in the fridge and eat cold. Either way my Grilled Sweet Potato Salad is one you will want to make again and again!
Grilled Sweet Potato & Black Bean Salad
- 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
- 1 red pepper, cut into large flat pieces for grilling
- 2 teaspoons SimplyNature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
- 1 can SimplyNature Organic Black Beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 green onions, chopped
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped

- In a large bowl toss the sweet potatoes in half of the olive oil. Toss the red peppers with the rest of the olive oil in a separate bowl. Sprinkle both with salt and pepper.
- Place the sweet potatoes on the grill. Cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes on each side. With a few minutes remaining in the grilling, add the peppers. Cook them for 2 minutes on each side until slightly charred.
- When cool enough to touch, cut the sweet potatoes and red peppers into bite-sized pieces.
- Stir in the black beans, green onions, cilantro and lime juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
