“When I told my friends that one of the best ways to eat salad is to grill it, they thought I was a little nutz. Till they tried it! The grilled flavor is easily imparted to the salad and the cheese and walnuts imbue a woodsy flavor. Great with grilled meats.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl mix vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Slowly stir in oils and 1 oz. of the cheese.
  3. Stir thoroughly but do not over mix.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to high.
  6. Wash and dry both heads of Romaine.
  7. Cut each head in half lengthwise. Leave the leaves attached to the stalk so that the leaves remain attached at the ends.
  8. Use a pastry brush or spray bottle to baste the romaine halves with olive oil. Use enough to coat the leaves but do not soak.
  9. Salt and pepper Romaine halves to taste.
  10. Place Romaine halves on heated grill and close cover. Turn after 4 to 5 minutes. Grill for additional 4 or 5 minutes. When removed from grill the Romaine should be wilted, and only slightly charred on the ends.
  11. Place Romaine half on serving plate, cut side up. Drizzle ¼ of the dressing on each Romaine half and sprinkle remaining cheese and toasted pecan pieces on each serving.
  12. Serve warm.
