Grill Your Caesar Salad!

I hadn't heard of a grilled salad until I visited The Frisky Oyster in Greenport, NY a few years ago. Frisky makes a grilled caesar salad that is out of this world, and probably contributes to the reason that they are in the top 5 fine dining restaurants on Long Island.

This is really easy to throw together, and you'll impress any guests you make it for! I love the warm lettuce, with the char flavor, added to your typical caesar salad favorites.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 3 minutes
Servings: 4

2 hearts of romaine lettuce, cutting in half, (longways) thru the stem (see as pictured)
1-2 tbs Olive Oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
Caesar dressing
Shaved parmesan
Optional: Grilled chicken, red onion


Preheat grill

1. Drizzle olive oil on the flat side of each romaine half, and spread with basting brush. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Grill romaine, flat side down on the BBQ, on Medium/High heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from grill.

3. Serve each half (whole or chopped) immediately, topped with dressing, parmesan and croutons.
