As I said - my husbands favorite meal includes Caesar Salad. I wanted to do a spin on it - and this is what I came up with…
Kind of a "wedge salad" idea. He loved it! Make this delicious Caesar Dressing with it!!
I love the Tanimura & Antle Artisan Romain lettuce heads - I find them at Costco - the package they come in actually inspired me to grill the lettuce!!
Grilled Caesar Salad
2 romaine heads of lettuce cut in half length wise
Parmesan Romano (I like the shredded kind - not the powdery stuff)
Heat up the grill on Med/High for a couple minutes (or wait until you take the meat you are grilling off to rest and put the Romaine heads on).
Prepare the lettuce by drizzling both sides of the wedge with olive oil. My favorite is the "Mediterranean Blend Oil" they sell at Costco (I feel like I should be getting paid for all these Costco references - haha) It is a blend of Canola, Olive and Grape seed oils. It is absolutely FANTASTIC!
Grill for about 45 seconds per side.
Drizzle with Caesar dressing. Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan Romano. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the asiago and add those too.
Serve with croutons (sorry they aren't pictured). YUMMY!!!
