Swimsuit season is here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t eat delicious food all day, every day. Try mixing up your salad, by putting it on the grill to make a grilled romaine salad. Grill your greens and all your delicious veggies all summer long!
You grill your veggies, so why not add your lettuce to the list? Make sure it’s a sturdy and heartier type of lettuce – like romaine, radicchio, treviso, endive, escarole, etc. That way you can soften the texture without it turning into mush. Just make sure the heat is up high, so it can cook quickly. Just remember to serve quickly before your leaves get too limp.
Grilled romaine caesar salad is delicious. Beside maybe a little help with making a dressing, it’s always been my philosophy that you don’t need a detailed recipe to make salad. Just a couple ideas of what flavors go together. I can’t wait to throw in some grilled corn, grilled peaches, and so may other grilled things in my salads this summer.
The original recipe calls for bacon. I used bacon-flavored olive oil from Our Best Bites and tossed in some pancetta to save on time. I made an extra large patch of potatoes so it could have it with other meals. I am all about making life a little easier!
