I saw these tiny compact Romaine heads in my local wholesale food club and I knew I needed to grill those babies up. It's like they were calling me...Grill Me...Grill Me. I was pleasantly surprised how tasty they were, the caramelized lettuce has a slightly sweet taste to it. Feasty Fans be brave and grill up your next salad. Enjoy!
*Romaine lettuce, best using compact tight lettuce
*Olive Oil spray
*granulated garlic powder
*freshly ground black pepper
Dressing options of your choice but I recommend crumbled blue cheese and crisply cooked crumbled bacon
1 Prep the romaine heart by rinsing and pulling off any leafy leaves.
Cut romaine in half lengthwise and shave off the browned part of the root end,
leaving the root end intact so that the lettuce head stays together.
2 Prepare your grill for high, direct heat. Spray both halves with
olive oil spray, granulated garlic powder, sea salt and freshly ground black
3 Grill the romaine hearts until browned and caramelized on all
sides, turning after about 5 minutes on each side.
Serve immediately with your favorite salad dressing. I think the perfect
choice is blue cheese crumbles with crisply cooked crumbled bacon.
