Grilled Romaine Salad

Burgers are so bland that’s why you basically gotta dress that shit up with a salad after you grill it. CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MEAT AND JUST GRILL A SALAD. 

3 romaine hearts or baby romaine heads, cleaned and cut in half lengthwise
2 cloves of garlic, minced
pinch of salt and pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
a couple tablespoons of your favorite dressing like our Summertime Tomato Vinaigrette or Creamy Herb Dressing
toppings: fresh herbs like chives, basil, dill, avocado, watermelon radishes, cucumbers, red onion, whatever the fuck you like

Heat the grill or a stove top grill pan to a medium heat.  While the grill heats up, mix the garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper in a little cup. Brush or spoon the oil mixture to the cut side of the lettuce. This isn't the fucking dressing, so go easy.

Place the lettuce face down on the grill for 60 seconds or until there are clear grill marks and the leaves are beginning to wilt. Flip the hearts over and grill the other side for another 60 seconds. You want the leaves to look charred but not all fucking limp SO PAY ATTENTION. When they look good, put em on a plate and let them cool for a minute.

When you're ready to serve those charred motherfuckers, drizzle some dressing over the hearts and top with all the herbs and shit you picked out, then crack over some more pepper.
