Something different from the grill with these sweet potato wedges. An easy and flavourful vegetarian salad that can be shared as a main or side dish this grilling season.



  1. Cut sweet potatoes in half crosswise then in half again lengthwise. Cut each into thin wedges and place in a large bowl. Toss with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the oil, chili powder and salt. Place on greased grill over medium heat and grill ,turning occasionally for about 10 minutes or until lightly charred and tender. Return to bowl and add chickpeas.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) of oil and vinegar. Drizzle over potato mixture and add parsley, basil and cheese. Toss well to combine.
