I’m honored to be a Stonyfield Ambassador this year, sharing deliciousness including this Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad. Scroll down to initiate mouth watering.
When I told my husband what we would be grilling lettuce for dinner, he said, “That won’t work and definitely won’t taste good.” But, I rarely steer him wrong…at least in the food department (driving directions are a whole different story).
He turned on the grill and watched the magic happen. Then, we all sat down to dive in. The lettuce is crunchy, but warm and you get the dressing all over and it’s fabulous! The dressing is salty, spicy and creamy. You don’t miss the egg yolks and anchovies one bit!
Side Note: I went to go write, “Then, we all sat down to munch on the romaine heads”, but it sounded way to cannibalistic. Poor lettuce. You are delicious.
The dressing came together SO easily thanks to using Stonyfield yogurt (you should see the stash I keep in my fridge for snacks, baking, creamy pasta sauce and dressings like this one!).
And how cute is that blue salad plate?! I was browsing Wayfair during one of my many middle of the night feedings and knew it was the perfect shape to serve romaine heads on. Normal circle plates cause the ends to stick out over the plate! This one was just right. Plus, the color is so summery that I couldn’t help myself. Check!
Summer’s not quite over (at least in South Carolina) yet, so bring on the grill and summer salads!
Tell me, have you ever grilled romaine lettuce?

I love grilled romaine and we haven’t had any this summer! Love that light yogurt-based dressing.
There is a restaurant in Hilton Head that does a fabulous grilled caesar. My response when I first saw it on the menu was the same as your husbands. As soon as I tried it I was in love! Your dressing sounds delicious!
What is/was the name of that restaurant in HH? I went in 2010 to an Italian restaurant and cannot remember the name for the life of me.
This is such a fun and creative way to enjoy salad! I love it!
