Grill This. With Father's Day June 21 (this Sunday in case you forgot), you know that your Dad is going to fire up the grill at some point in the day. In the event that he becomes a dictator over the Weber, you can entice him with this delicious recipe for a Trio of Grilled Potato Wedges with an Avocado Cilantro Dipping Sauce. Recipe is as follows:


Potato Wedges:

1lb. Russet Potatoes

1lb. Sweet Potatoes

1lb. Blue Potatoes

1 tsp sea salt

2 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. black pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

2 tbs. olive oil

Avocado Dipping Sauce:

3/4 c. fat-free Greek yogurt

1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

2 cloves garlic

1/4 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves

1/2 tbs. lime juice

Salt & pepper to taste


Potato Wedges:

Wash and scrub the potatoes so all the dirt is removed

Heat the grill to medium

Cut the potatoes into wedges with a thickness of 1 inch

Combine the salt, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and olive oil in a bowl

In a mixing bowl, coat the wedges with the seasoning mixture

Spray the grill with cooking spray and place the coated potatoes onto the heated grill

Rotate the potatoes every 5 minutes, and cook until the potatoes are fork tender. Cook time is approximately 18 minutes. The sweet and blue potatoes will cook quicker than the russet potatoes.

Serve hot with the Avocado dipping sauce

Avocado Dipping Sauce:

Using a blender, mix the yogurt, avocado, and garlic

Hand mix in the cilantro and lime juice

Add salt and pepper based on your taste
