Grilled Romaine Salad

Grilled lettuce? Seriously? Yes, I am serious, and I kid you not, this salad is to die for. This one is packed with amazing flavor, is so quick to make, and will get your guests talking.

Grilled Romaine Lettuce Recipe


  • Olive oil
  • One head of romaine lettuce
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 4 pieces of bacon, cooked, patted dry, and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled blue cheese

Begin by getting your grill heated to medium-high heat.

Cook your bacon.

In the meantime, rinse the inside of your head of lettuce. Trim a bit off the bottom, but leave the stump connected as this will keep the lettuce held together. Slice the head lengthwise, leaving you with two parts. Drizzle both insides with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place the halved romaine heads, inside facing down. The goal here is to get a nice sear on the lettuce. This will only take a few minutes.

Remove from the grill, and chop each one in half, so you will have four servings. Drizzle with more olive oil, sprinkle the bacon, and blue cheese over the top.

This salad is really killer, and goes great with steak on the grill. Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
