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.
- 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.
