Summer salad recipes

I admit when the weather is very hot in the summer, I eat salad. So summer salad recipes are important to me. Besides summer salad recipes, I also grill a lot in the summer. So can you have both a salad and a grill recipe in one? Yes you can!

Grilled caesar salad

The first time I had a Grilled Caesar salad was years ago, at Christmas in Cleveland. I hosted the annual Christmas party and one of the dishes we had was this wood-fired grilled caesar salad. My god, it was amazing!

There was something about that grilled romaine lettuce. The smokiness of grilling the romaine really gave the Caesar salad a new taste. Plus adding heat to the lettuce made it sweeter somehow.

Grilling romaine lettuce

When I first thought to recreate that caesar salad from the restaurant, I thought it would be hard to grill the romaine. Turns out grilling romaine lettuce is actually easy. You do have to marinade the romaine in an oil. I choose to do a mixture of oil and lemon.

Then just place the romaine lettuce on the top part of the grill, and let it grill for about 2-3 minutes. Lift the lid and rotate the lettuce. Then grill for another 2-3 minutes, and VIOLA! you have grilled romaine lettuce.

This grilled Caesar salad is not my only grilled salad recipe. I also have Grilled Vegetables Orzo Salad {With Lemon Dijon Dressing} and a Grilled Peach Caprese Salad as well.
