The recipe I’m gonna share with you today is incredibly fast, easy and best of all, it is always a hit at cookouts!
I know grilling a salad seems weird, but if you try it, I promise you’re gonna love it!
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
1 heart of romaine lettuce
your favorite Caesar dressing
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Pre heat your grill. Cut the heart of romaine in half, leaving the stalk at the end (this will keep the leaves connected on the grill).
Place the romaine, cut side down, on the hot grill.
Let the lettuce cook for 1-2 minutes and flip.
Repeat on the other side and remove from grill. Don’t walk away from the grill, the lettuce doesn’t take long to get that pretty char.
Top the charred lettuce with Caesar dressing, croutons, and parmesan cheese.
Serve with a yummy burger and fries for the perfect summer meal!
