I was grilling steak one night and wanted to make a special side dish. I'd recently seen a grilled romaine Caesar recipe, and decided to create my own version. This salad goes well with chicken, too, and couldn't be easier. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

"Really liked this, even though I forgot to add the parmesan. Most of my other grilled romaine salads have more of a vinaigrette type dressing so this was a nice change."

"I love the idea of adding bleu cheese as the previous review states. The salad is good either way."

"Oh, did this ever go well with grilled steak! I "cheated" and added a little crumbled bleu cheese to the dressing! I also used real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon. Thank you for submitting this recipe!"
