Grilled Romaine Salad


  • 2 large head romaine lettuce rinsed and cut in half
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 c. toasted pine nuts
  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 c. olive oil
  • 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. dried minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


  1. Cut the head(s) of romaine in half lengthwise. Brush with a little olive oil. Grill romaine over heated grill for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from grill. Drizzle dressing over salad, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts.
  2. Or, do as I mentioned above and marinate cut romaine in the dressing for 15 minutes before grilling, grill, then top with nuts and Parmesan cheese.

Recipe Notes

**Note:  Buttermilk Ranch dressing or Caesar dressing is also good served with this salad. You can serve this 1/4 - 1/2 head per person or when it comes off the grill give it a chop a few times.
