Be brave! Grilling with olive oil actually caramelizes the leaves for a crunchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside experience.

Preparation
STEP 1

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush halved romaine hearts with olive oil on both sides.

STEP 2

To make the dressing whisk together minced garlic, Dijon, capers, anchovy paste, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Slowly whisk in olive oil. Gently stir in grated parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to your taste preference.

STEP 3

Grill the romaine hearts cut side down for about 3-5 minutes, until they have some nice char marks, and then flip. Cook for about one more minute.

STEP 4

Pour desired amount of dressing over the top of grilled romaine. Sprinkle with extra parmesan cheese and croutons. Serve with grilled chicken for a full meal.
