Grilled Romaine Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette


I am late in making this for the Sunday Salad Samplers but so thankful to Cindy for sharing this recipe. When I first read the post I questioned the "Grilled Romaine" part but wanted to try it out and so glad that I did. Delicious!


2 heads romaine lettuce
Extra-virgin olive oil
Citrus Caesar Vinaigrette, recipe below
Chopped tomatoes
Homemade croutons, if desired

Preheat grill to med-high.
Rinse and pat dry the lettuce. Cut the 2 heads in half lengthwise. Brush surface wtih olive oil and grill about 4 to 5 minutes total, turning occasionally. Place each wedge on a salad plate and drizzle with Citrus Caesar Vinaigrette. With a vegetable peeler, shave some pieces from a wedge of Reggiano-Parmigiano over each salad. Top with chopped tomatoes and homemade croutons and serve.

1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons anchovy paste
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Place all ingredients in a pint jar with a lid. Secure the lid, then shake to blend. Store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to a week.

I skipped the achovy paste... Grilled Romaine was enough adventure... :) Seriously, Cindy, this was delicious!!! Thanks again.

It was good, wasn't it? Yours looks great!

Barb Cabot:

Eden, this salad looks so good. I really like trying all the recipes you post.

I wasn't sure about either however, if the samplers were making it then so would I! Thank goodness - it was a great salad and everyone LOVED it!

Eden-I'm so glad you enjoyed the salad. I first had a grilled romaine salad in Glen Ellen, CA, and it was so delicious I had to come home and search for a recipe. Grilled lettuce sounds so diffent, but it doesn't really cook it, just chars it around the edges.
