Grilled Romaine Salad


1 head romaine lettuce
1 tsp. olive oil
¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
¼ cup crumbled bacon
1 Tbsp. raspberry balsamic vinegar


Wash and dry your lettuce. Make sure the romaine is totally dry before you grill it or you will end up with a soggy salad. Do not trim the end, that is what holds the lettuce together. Simple slice the romaine heart in half.
Place cut-side down on an oiled grill or George Foreman grill. Close the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes. Open the grill, flip the lettuce and grill for another 2 minutes. Don’t leave it on for too long or it will lose all of it’s crunch.
Place the romaine cut-side up on a plate. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and blue cheese. Sprinkle with raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. Serve immediately! (One romaine heart equals two servings.)
