Hello Foodie Friends,

Salads are my favorite dish to accompany any main dish. Specially during the summer, I like to use all the fresh produce and ingredients for tasty, crunchy and refreshing salad bowls.

I know you have seen many grilled romaine salads recipes, but this one will be unique with this creamy cilantro dressing. The toppings can be anything you like, from tomatoes, crunchy smokey bacon, pancetta or croutons.

I simply start with a fresh head of romaine lettuce. Rinse and pad dry. Then spray with avocado oil, and lightly grilled for about 4-5 minutes face down. They key is to put it on a hot grill so it gets the char grilled marks.

Cut each head in half, lengthwise. The rinse and pad dry. Spray with avocado oil.

Grilled marks on point but still so crunchy.

Fresh tasty ingredients !
