Description

A refreshing grilled salad that is perfect by itself or with a meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 heads Romaine Lettuce
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1-½ cup Sliced Strawberries
  • 1 cup Balasamic Vinegar
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese

Preparation

Light your grill and set to high. While the grill is warming, drizzle the lettuce with the olive oil and set aside. Slice your strawberries.

For the dressing, in a small pot, boil the vinegar, sugar and 1/2 cup of the strawberries. Once boiling, turn heat to medium and let it reduce by 1/3 so that it gets slightly thick.

To grill the lettuce, using tongs, place the lettuce on the hot spots of the grill so that it gets warmed and slightly charred but not limp. We don’t want limp lettuce! Keep turning it so that it’s evenly charred. Not burnt! This only takes a few minutes tops.

To serve, place whole heads of lettuce on a platter, drizzle with the dressing, the remaining strawberries and the gorgonzola cheese.

Yum!

Thanks! I love this recipe. It’s simple and impressive which makes it great for parties or even just dinner for two! I will have to try the raspberries- that sounds yummy!

I just made this balsamic reduction using half white and half brown sugar and frozen raspberries. The result is delicious!

Was very easy to put together. Added red onion to the salad. This will become a fast favorite in our hosehold.

Love this recipe! I made it last night–I added grilled chicken breasts cut up as well as chopped pecans. Wonderful! This will be a regular on my menu. Thanks for sharing!

Yum! We all loved it – even my little ones. I was surprised at how much flavor the grilling imparts. I used a fig balsamic, feta and added toasted pecans.

Not only is this a fast and easy salad, it is so delicious and elegant. This will be one of our favorites this summer. Even my 10 year old loved it.

This was really good and super easy. I used a little less sugar and blue cheese as it was all I had on hand. In addition, I made some crispy bacon and sprinkled it on top. Delish!
