Grilled Romaine Salad with Bacon and Blue Cheese

May 26, 2011

I am very picky about my salad greens, they must be crisp.   If there is any limpness, I won't eat them.  So you can imagine my speculation when I came across a recipe for grilled lettuce.  I was feeling adventurous so I decided to try it.  After a few minutes the romaine began to brown and wilt.  The flavor was plesantly surprising.  The heat gave the romaine a wonderful a nutty quality.  I recommend this salad if you want to step out of your comfort zone and enjoy something radically delicious.
