Grilled Romaine Hearts

This is a great twist on your typical salads. If you are like us, we tend to eat salad on a “too” regular basis. We love our greens and love salads, especially as my garden is growing really great toppings for a nice crisp summer salad. And though salad is great, we like to switch things up a bit now and again too.

Now this is a salad that made me very excited and was really easy to grill. I buy romaine from Costco for $3 for 6 romaines. I made this the other night for the family and my husband preferred to eat it as is, rather than add all the yummy goodness once grilled. Both ways are really good but my way was a little less healthy but too delicious to deny. :)


  • 1 Romaine heart, sliced in half
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • Sea Salt
  • Garlic Salt
  • EVOO
  • Dressing of choice (optional)
  • Glazed praline nuts (optional)

Wash and slice romaine in half lengthwise.


On a plate, or grill basket, place romaine to keep from falling apart while seasoning.


Season with salt, pepper and garlic salt.


Cut lemon in half and squeeze throughout both romaines.


Now you are ready to grill.


Place face down on the grill for 2-3 minutes. Once lightly golden, remove with tongs.


Eat as is! My husband prefers it as is but tonight I wanted a smidgen of blue cheese dressing and glazed praline nuts. My way was less healthy, but DEFINITELY not worth arguing about. :)


Served with Bacon Wrapped Sausages.
