I've had a grilled romain salad, I don't really care for it.

I've made Guy Fieri's recipe for Grilled Romaine with Blue Cheese-Bacon Vinaigrette (from Guy's Big Bite on FoodNetwork). It was good.

Great idea, grumblebee. Bet it would make for a yummy BLT salad. Thanks for sharing.

One of my favorite salads in the whole wide world is a Caesar salad. I will make a copy and the next time I make my salad I will try it your way.

About 4 years ago we had a grilled romaine salad at Macaroni Grill - I've been making it ever since.

I think the key is to not let it cook too long. The cooking gives the lettuce a nice nutty flavor. I pour some olive oil on a plate and season it with kosher salt and cracked black pepper, Slather the cut side of the piece then place on the grill. Just get some grill marks - if it's cooking too fast move to a cooler spot. Just grill one side. There will be a few pieces at the tip that might be a bit limp but the flavor in them is incredible and I just cut them off and mix with a bite of the crispier pieces.

If it's too charred though it's not good. Very bitter.

Ever since I have heard of this concept, I have been eating grilled romaine.... I don't do much to it except drizzle evoo on it with a bit of S&P. I never thougt of doing a ceasar salad with it and it sounds quite yummy. I love the grilled romaine, hubby does not. So I halve the romaine, one half on the grill, the other ges ripped to make a regular salad.

I have wanted to try the parmesan cheese, but was afraid that the cheese would not stick to the lettuce during grilling. I guess the oil makes the cheese stick?

Lovely idea, Grumblebee!

I've never grilled Romaine lettuce, but I have followed Steve Raichlen's recipe for Grilled radicchio with a sweet/sour Venetian sauce. .
