This grilled romaine salad recipe is my favorite kind of salad EVER.
My friend Cheree messaged me after she made this one up and said “LAURIE. This is a restaurant quality salad ~ you've got to try this one today!”
(She knows I love a yummy salad recipe, so of course I made it right away.)
What was fascinating to me is that you actually grill the salad on the grill (I know? Isn't that nuts?) which is what gives it just the perfect flavor. (I used a grill basket like this one. It definitely made it easier!)
Because I love a yummy fruity salad (I make them at least a few days a week for lunch), I almost always keep strawberries, blueberries and pecans on hand. So I added every bit of that yumminess, and created a happy fresh rainbow-color-salad right at home.
Tip: Don't have a grill? Follow the instructions below for the grilled romaine salad, just make it all up on your stovetop. It'll work just fine! Because we love this one so much we added it to our Side Dishes Menu Plan (launching May 1st at 7PM Eastern Time!), and I know you'll want to add it to your menu plan right away too.
