Grill your salad

Sometimes, scary as it sounds, a simple salad just tastes good. Char up the lettuce and meat on the egg, and it tastes great!

Chicken strips lightly seasoned

Char up some romaine lettuce on both sides


Plated with a home made dressing. Yum!

    that looks like a good salad... I've never had grilled lettuce. I think I'll give it a shot. was the dressing a straight up vinaigrette?
    context is important :)
  • We went with a caesar type dressing ... Erin is the dressing wizard ... she tosses stuff together and out comes a delicious dressing every time!

    Also never heard of grilled lettuce until I found this forum. Will give this a try.

    I started putting the lettuce on a griddle with some EVOO so the tips don't char like they do on the grid.

    Makes a world of a difference. Keep On Eggin'

    Grilled romaine is one of my favorites. Nice job on the salad.
