Tasty Tuesday – Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

Fire up the grill! This one is simple but yummy.

First, wash and dry the sweet potatoes, then cut them into wedges (think steak fries sized), toss with a little oil (something high smoke point is preferable as you’ll be grilling them) and sprinkle with this spices of your choice – there are several recipes for “rubs” out there that would work nicely!

Preheat grill to medium and then place the wedges directly on the grill grates. Cook about 3 – 4 minutes per side.

Tasty Thursday – Mango Salsa

My husband discovered this one day and to say I have been hooked since is a pretty serious understatement. I suppose it should be noted that I am an absolute SUCKER for anything that pairs with a tortilla chip, and this certainly fits that bill!

We have since taken to making our own, and I pretty much cannot get enough of this stuff – plus it’s clean ingredients (natural sugars for the win!)

I like it with tortilla’s, but it actually works well on top of grilled chicken, too!

Note: I buy pre-peeled mangoes because it makes it easier, and I am all about making life easier!

Have you tried it? Do you love it? Let me know what you think!
