Delicious flavors come together in this Grilled Sweet Potato Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette!

Serve this as a side at any BBQ or summer gathering, or make it for a weeknight meatless dinner! Made in partnership with Stop & Shop!

I am so excited to bring you today’s blog post in partnership with Stop & Shop. I love their Buy Local campaign throughout their stores right now, and that they work hard to support local New England farmers. As of right now, they offer locally sourced produce from 35 New England farmers! The produce is picked at the farm and the next day it is in stores – you can’t get any fresher than that! Fun fact: Stop & Shop has been supporting local farmers for decades sourcing potatoes, corn, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, and apples; to name a few!  I shopped at the Watertown, MA location for ALL of the ingredients for this recipe, and the produce for this recipe came from Paquette Farms in Shrewsbury, MA. How cool is that?

First, you’ll need to toss your sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper!

Now, while that’s grilling, whisk together your dressing! I love the Nature’s Promise organic line of products that Stop & Shop has. The products are affordable and are a great quality. In this dressing alone we used their Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and wild honey! Even the sweet potatoes are Nature’s Promise! Affordable, delicious, and good quality- my three musts!
