Simple Grilled Romaine Salad

Updated: Aug 10, 2020

If you have never had grilled lettuce—try it now.  I thought it sounded weird, but kept seeing recipes for it and finally gave it a try last summer.  It makes a perfect side to grilled steak and is fast to prepare while the meat rests.  Make sure to use good quality lettuce: our little romaine heads a perfect.

2 heads fresh good quality romaine lettuce, cut vertically from base to top (you will have 4 halves)

3 Tbsp olive oil


Black pepper

One medium lemon

Fresh parmesan cheese

Make sure the grates of the grill are clean and the heat is at medium high.

Brush lettuce halves liberally with olive oil, cut side and back side.  Then sprinkle each halve with some salt

Grill for 3 minutes, cut side down, pressing with your tongs to make sure the lettuce gets a good sear.  Flip and grill for 1 or 2 minutes more.

Remove from the grill.  Sprinkle with more salt and pepper, drizzle with remaining olive oil.  Squeeze fresh lemon juice over each half and top with a Tbsp of parmesan on each half.

Add your favorite toppings
