Quarter potatoes lengthwise. Then chop into 1/2 inch pieces. If the slices are too large cut them in half.

Step 6: Herb Salsa
While the potatoes are cooling, mix together 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro, 1 tsp shallots, and 1 tsp green onions. Then add 1 tbsp avocado oil and 3 tbsp lime juice. Finally, add cumin ( only about 1 pinch) and salt to taste.
Step 7: Sesame Seeds
Pour 1.5 oz sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Dip the cooled potatoes in the seeds. Roll sweet potatoes in the seeds. Then remove potatoes.
