Grilled Caesar Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


6 servings

“This recipe is from my aunt. It’s great when it’s too hot to cook inside and you want something more than a typical salad. Plus, it whips up in minutes," says Debbie Clark of Northglenn, Colorado.


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 bunches romaine hearts, halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing, divided
  • 3/4 cup salad croutons
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Prepare grill for indirect medium heat. In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic; let stand for 5 minutes. Brush over the cut side of each romaine half; lightly brush with 2-3 tablespoons salad dressing.
  2. Grill, covered, for 3-4 minutes or until outer leaves begin to wilt and romaine is heated through, turning once. Coarsely chop romaine, discarding cores.
  3. Transfer to a salad bowl. Sprinkle with croutons and cheese. Serve with remaining salad dressing.
