  • 2 medium sweet potato
  • 2 cup pineapple
  • 1/4 cup parsley, fresh
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, light
  • 1/4 cup yogurt, plain, low-fat
  • 3 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne or red pepper
  • 4 serving (3 oz) Ham, Bone-in


  • Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1/2″ cubes. Boil the sweet potatoes in a pot of salted water until tender, 5-7 minutes. Drain then rinse under cold water until cool. Combine with pineapple and parsley.
  • Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar, 2 teaspoons lime juice, and vanilla together in a dish. Season with salt and white pepper; toss with the potato mixture to coat.
  • Combine blackening spices in a small bowl, then rub the mixture on both sides of the ham steak (16-20 ounces). Grill (or use stove-top grill pan) until the edges of the steak begin to curl; flip the steak and grill 1-2 more minutes. Serve with sweet potato salad.
