Method

Make Caesar dressing by combining the first 9 ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.

Preheat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. Remove lose outer leaves from each romaine heart. Cut each romaine heart, lengthwise, in half. Brush the cut side of each romaine heart with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set the romaine, cut-side down, on the grill and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly charred. Set a romaine heart, cut-side up, on each of 6 salad plates. Drizzle each romaine heart with Caesar dressing. Garnish lettuce with lemon slices, shaved or grated Parmesan, and croutons, if using.


Note: Romaine hearts are the centre portion of the head. They are sold in that form in bags in our produce department.

Serving Suggestions

Serve this salad as a starter, or as a side dish for one of the grilled entrees you'll find in our collection, such as Grilled Halibut Steaks with Basil Garlic Butter, Grilled Marinated Pork Shoulder Blade Steaks, or BC Merlot Marinated Sirloin Steak.

Instead of a mayonnaise-based dressing, flavour the grilled romaine with the the dressing from our Light and Delicious Caesar Salad recipe. To make this a main course salad, along with the cheese and croutons, serve the lettuce with grilled prawns or sliced, grilled chicken breast.
