Trust me...

I know, I looks bad.

But, believe me, it tastes way better than it looks.

It's grilled romaine. And it is delicious! It has a touch of smokiness when you eat it, which makes for a wonderfully different salad.

I rinse my heads of romaine, pulling them apart a bit at the top so the water can get all through. I let them drain and try to shake off any excess water. Next, I cut them the long way and brush some olive oil on the cut side.

They don't take very long at all on the grill-you don't want to actually cook them. Some of the leaves get wilted but most of it retains some crispiness. And, the smoky flavor? Mmmm.

Since organic romaine tends to be small heads, we usually get two servings out of each head as a main dish salad. Oh, and you can thank me for sparing you the blurry picture of my salad once it was made. You're welcome.

Try this, now that grilling season is here. You won't be sorry. Trust me. Trust me.
