Grilled Romain with caesar dressing
So we grilled some romaine last night and added some caesar dressing. It was fantastic. We used some caesar dressing leftover from a restaurant. So we are out now. But it was so simple and good we'd like to do it more often. Just need a store bought dressing.

Split the romaine in half lengthways
brush lightly with olive oil and add S&P.

Grilled for a min or 2 high heat on each side.

Does anyone suggest a store bought caesar dressing for when we do this again?

Make it from scratch. Check out serious eats recipe. It's far better than any bottled dressing I've tried

Would you be interested in making your own? I know that's an annoying suggestion when asking for a rec, so totally understand if you don't want to! But if you do, it is not difficult at all, and a nice arm workout Other than the anchovies, it is all ingredients you probably own. Oil, egg yolks, etc.

For store bought, I would say Marie's and Bolthouse Farms are both decent.

re: Grilled Romain with caesar dressing
Cook's Country has a Caesar dressing recipe that I've used a lot. Double it, and the extra will keep in the fridge a long time.

Dressing:
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 anchovy fillets, rinsed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine lemon juice and garlic in bowl and let stand for 10 minutes. Process mayonnaise, Parmesan, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, anchovies, salt, pepper and lemon-garlic mixture in blender for about 30 seconds. With blender running, slowly add oil.

They brush some dressing on the split sides of the romaine, grill a minute or two, then serve with more dressing and grated Parmesan.

This makes it so good. Get a loaf of French bread, slice into rounds, brush bread lightly with olive oil, and grill uncovered, until browned, about 1 minute per side. That grilled bread is fantastic.

Anchovies in the dressing are pretty standard, but I have left them out and didn't really miss them.

We make this often in the summer. A sous vide chicken breast thrown on the grill for a couple minutes is a good accompaniment.

Here's Alton Brown's take on it:

Food Network

He freezes the dressing.

Sometimes I use balsamic and shaved parmesan on grilled romaine.

I had some with balsamic and blue cheese dressing recently.
Is it weird to really like a salad?

This is criminally underrated. I make my wife a grilled chicken and veggie salad that we love. Essentially, it's chicken kabobs deconstructed (chicken, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, onion) and then the grilled romaine. We use a honey mustard dressing on it. awesome.

We used to get the awesome grilled Caesar at a restaurant called Panzano in downtown Denver. Never been able to replicate as the lettuce always comes out too soft.

I usually make my own as it is so simple - I use the Serious Eats recipe, but if I am lazy or in a pinch, I think La Madeleine's bottled Caesar is the best that I've found.

A grilled cabbage wedge with blue cheese is very good too.

re: Grilled Romain with caesar dressing
AbitaFan -

YOu will love it. I got the gas grill on high and let the surface get really hot. Grilled about a min or so on both sides. With the olive oil brush and S&P it cant be beat.

I got a good light char and the romaine stayed firm.

Good call on the chicken. I am probably doing pork chops with it the next time. On those I usually do olive oil and cavenders seasoning. Cooked medium.
