Grilled Romaine with Chive-Buttermilk Dressing Recipe

Grilled Romaine with Chive-Buttermilk Dressing Recipe

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
