Grilled Romaine Hearts with Caesar Dressing Gel


These grilled romaine hearts are the perfect side dish for any summer BBQ. The Caesar dressing gel gives them a delicious creamy flavour, while the grilling brings out a slight char that takes them to the next level. This dish is also very easy to make, so it’s great for entertaining.


-4 romaine hearts, halved lengthwise
-1/2 cup (120 ml) Caesar dressing
-1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
-1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) salt


1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together Caesar dressing, olive oil, and salt.

3. Grill romaine hearts for 2-3 minutes per side, until slightly charred.

4. Serve with Caesar dressing gel.

Potential changes & improvements

-If you want a more intense flavour, you could try using a flavoured olive oil or adding some garlic to the Caesar dressing.
-If you’re not a fan of grilling, you could also roast the romaine hearts in the oven.

What other food it works well with

These grilled romaine hearts are delicious on their own, but they would also be great with grilled chicken or steak.

Common Mistakes

-One common mistake is using too much dressing, which can make the dish too oily. Be sure to start with a small amount and add more if needed.
-Another mistake is not grilling the romaine hearts long enough. They should be slightly charred on the outside, but still crisp in the middle.
