Grilled Caesar Salad is a smokey spin on the classic recipe. Leafy sections of romaine are seared on the barbecue to create a lightly charred texture. The flavors come together with a drizzle of creamy homemade caesar dressing, croutons, and parmesan cheese.
Caesar salad is a staple on restaurant menus, but it can be easily made at home. Crisp chopped greens tossed in a creamy anchovy dressing are a classic combination. To take the taste to the next level, the lettuce is grilled to add a hint of char flavor.
Here is a quick recipe for Grilled Caesar Salad:
PREP TIME: 20 mins | COOK TIME: 5 mins | TOTAL TIME: 25 mins
SERVINGS: 4 people | CALORIES: 368 kcal
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon anchovy paste
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- take ½ teaspoon of minced garlic
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper plus more for seasoning
- take ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil plus more for brushing
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese finely grated, plus more for garnish
- 2 hearts romaine
- 1 cup croutons
In a medium bowl whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, anchovy paste, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Slowly whisk in olive oil until a thickened dressing is formed.
Add the parmesan cheese and whisk to combine.
Cut romaine lettuce heads in quarters lengthwise leaving the cores intact.
This will yield eight sections. If the lettuce head is small, keep it in halves.
Brush olive oil on the cut sides of the lettuce. Lightly season with salt.
Preheat the grill over medium-high heat (350 to 400ºF).
Carefully grease the cooking grates with tongs using a paper towel dipped in oil.
Once the grates are hot, place the Romaine lettuce cut side down on the grill.
Press the lettuce down so it creates direct contact with the hot grates. Cook until lightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes.
Flip to the other cut side and grill for 1 to 2 additional minutes.
Transfer grilled lettuce to serving plates.
Drizzle with Caesar dressing and top with freshly cracked black, parmesan cheese, and croutons.
