Grilled Sweet Potato Salad

Grilled sweet potatoes require close attention——but the results are worth it. Slice them too thick, and they won'’t cook through; slice them too thin, and they'’ll char quickly. So slice carefully, and keep an eye on the grill.

SO GOOD. I was going to grill the sweet potatoes but then it was too cold out so I baked them instead. Prob lost a lot of grill flavor, but it's still delicious. I added edamame and corn to the salad part. Used OJ because that's what I like best.
