I saw this phenomenon of grilling romaine lettuce sometime last year but never had the opportunity to make it. When I saw this recipe on the Weight Watchers message board, I knew I’d be grilling it up straight away. I put way more than 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese so my vinaigrette came out more like a thick dressing. It was a different taste but was very good and a little different.
Grilled Romaine Hearts with Caesar Vinaigrette (Recipe taken from Weight Watchers message board)
2 heads romaine lettuce
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
1 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, worcestershire and mustard. Stir in cheese and set aside.
Preheat grill over medium – high heat. Cut romaine length wise leaving the core so each half remains together. Spray with olive oil spray or Pam. Grill until grill marks form and lettuce wilts. About 6 minutes turning twice. Remove and drizzle with vinaigrette dressing.
