Sweet Potato Wedges with Cilantro Yogurt Dipping Sauce

This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy sweet potatoes: skewered and grilled. They're simple to prepare, and the cool, creamy dipping sauce takes only a few minutes to whip up. Pair these skewers with any smoky, grilled meat and prepare to swoon.
