Grilled Caesar Salad

grilled romaine.jpgThe first time I tried a grilled salad I was blown away. The smoky taste of the lettuce was life changing. I find it very hard to make a salad any other way now. Aside from the smoky taste, what I like about this salad is that you control the size of the bite you’re taking. Ever eat a salad that has large pieces of lettuce that you can’t fit a bit into your mouth? Not enjoyable.
