4 large sweet potatoes, do not peel
2 large potatoes
4 spring onion, used both parts, green and white
1/2 cup oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover by an inch with cold water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until just cooked through but not soft, about 40 minutes depending on the size. When cool enough to handle, slice crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Must be fork tender!
Preheat grill to high. Brush potatoes on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until lightly golden brown on both sides and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove to a bowl. Brush onions with the remaining oil and grill until slightly charred and softened, about 4 minutes. Remove and thinly slice. Add to the potatoes.
Whisk together the vinegars, mustard and honey in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified and taste for seasoning. Pour the dressing over the potatoes, add the parsley and gently toss to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.
