If you’ve taken a personal chef cooking class with me in the past, chances are that you’re experienced the delight of a grilled romaine salad.  You have no idea how much flavor is hidden inside of a lettuce leaf until you put fire to it!

You put many different kinds of dressings and vinaigrettes with this salad, but I will give you a quick, light and refreshing lemon and olive oil vinaigrette below.

Yields: 4 servings

- 2 heads of romaine lettuce
- Olive oil and/or olive oil cooking spray
- The juice of one lemon
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- Bread croutons


1. Get your grill nice and hot.

2. Slice your romaine lettuce in half lengthwise. Spray the cut side with olive oil spray.

3. Put it flat side down on the grill for a couple of minutes until grill marks form on the lettuce, and the under-side is just  bit wilted. 

4. Remove from the grill, chop it up and put it in a bowl. 

5. Mix with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and croutons. Enjoy!
