Grilled Romaine Hearts

Romaine is a great companion for a grilled medium rare steak, but don’t leave it on the grill too long, or the leaves may scorch. —Stuart Pritchard, Commerce, Texas

    It’s grilling season and I have been doing a lot of it! This is a great way to add a side dish that people won’t expect and it’s so simple! My entire family loves this dish!

    Delicious! Reduced the ingredients to two portions. Used balsamic vinegar dressing on my serving, but DH preferred regular vinegar dressing. Garnished with sliced onions and tomatoes. Yum!

    Very good! There is another grilled romaine recipe on this site that is my absolute favorite but it is more involved. When I am short on time, this is my new go-to.
