Grilled Romaine Salad

Tender hearts of lettuce are lightly grilled and warmed through in this Grilled Romaine Salad. Topped with a homemade vinaigrette, you can add blue cheese and bacon crumbles for even more flavor.

A simple homemade vinaigrette is made with oil, vinegar, mustard, and garlic. The homemade dressing makes for plenty of leftovers to use on other salads, or double the amount of romaine lettuce to feed a crowd.

If you need to wash the lettuce make sure you do it early in the day, as being wet when placed on the grill causes it to steam and make the lettuce go soggy.

Ingredients

Vinaigrette Dressing

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 clove minced or crushed garlic

1 teaspoon ground mustard

salt and pepper, to taste

Salad

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil

juice from 1/4 lemon

1 head romaine lettuce, split lengthwise with the outer leaves removed

Recipe Directions

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients and set aside until ready to serve.

  2. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, cheese, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil and lemon juice.

  4. Drizzle the lettuce halves with the oil mixture and season with the cheese mixture.

  5. Grill over direct medium-high heat for 30 to 40 seconds per side, just enough to warm and wilt.

  6. Top with the dressing and serve.
