Grilled lettuce in a salad recipe? It may sound a bit weird, but it is yummy. This delicious salad recipe is a perfect side dish for any heavy meat recipe. A charred romaine salad with a light and refreshing flavor that cleanses the palate.
Making the vinaigrette for this salad is super easy. The formula is always 3 parts high-quality oil and 1 part acid. Oils such as extra virgin olive oil, hemp seed oil, flaxseed oil, and pumpkin seed oil are perfect. Just be creative! For the acids, you may use white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, lemon, lime, and other citrus fruits.
