grilled romaine salad

14 Aug

I’d like you to meet my new obsession:  grilled romaine salad.  I’ve read about grilling lettuce for several years, but never got around to actually making it (kind of like thinking about cleaning out the junk drawer, but never quite finding the time).  The latest Washington heat wave (upper 80’s, low 90’s!) has pushed me out of the kitchen and onto the grill.

The barbecue does an amazing thing to the romaine.  It becomes sweeter, with a slight smoky flavor.  I served it with a light blue cheese dressing (recipe to come, it’s 1 PointsPlus!), one slice of crumbled bacon (1 PointsPlus)and a few halved cherry tomatoes.

There’s really not a recipe for the salad.  Heat your grill and cut the romaine in half.  Optional is to lightly spray lettuce with olive oil.  Place on grill.  Wait a few minutes and flip (you should have some nice grill marks).  Remove from grill and enjoy!

    Kelly, Grilled romaine also makes a great Ceasar Salad with a little extra smokey kick. Dad
