> 2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed
> 3 tbsp olive oil
> 1/2 cup fresh salsa
> 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
> 1 lime, halved, plus more for garnish, if desired


Set grill to medium-high. Cut the sweet potatoes into ½-inch-thick slices lengthwise and arrange in a microwave-safe dish along with 2 tbsp water. Cover with vented plastic and microwave 1 min.
Uncover potatoes and drain. Brush potatoes on both sides with the oil. Season all over with salt. Grill 4–6 min. per side, until tender and grill marks appear. Transfer sweet potatoes to a platter.
Top sweet potatoes with the salsa, cilantro, and freshly squeezed lime juice.
