Grilled Romaine

From Farm Where Life is Good

<p>If you&#8217;ve never tried grilling your salad, you certainly should! A little olive oil, a little salt, and a minute on the grill and you&#8217;ll have crisp greens with crunchy grilled flavor. You will be amazed how much romaine one person can eat when it&#8217;s prepared this way! Different and fun!</p>

Serves: One head of romaine will feed 1 or 2 people

1 head romaine
olive oil
sea salt
crushed croutons
Parmesan cheese

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Remove the outer leaves from your romaine to leave you with narrower, "heart of romaine" type heads. Cut each head in half the long way.
  2. Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt & pepper (Tip: Brush the concave sides first - if you do the flat side first, all the salt falls off when you turn the head over to brush the back)
  3. Grill 1-2 minutes per side. It works well to grill these on 3 sides - concave side down, leaning to the left, then concave side down, leaning to the right, then flat side. They don't take long, just a couple of minutes total!
  4. You can sprinkle them with crushed croutons and Parmesan cheese once off the grill - and eat them by picking them up by the base and biting pieces off - like a big green grilled carrot. Delicious!
