Grilled Caesar Salad

I had grilled Caesar Salad in a restaurant, and was determined to replicate it myself. Here are the results! 


1/2 cup olive oil
3 cloves pressed garlic
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp dry mustard
juice of half a large lemon
1 coddled egg*
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

*to coddle an egg, place the egg in boiling water for 3 minutes



full head of romaine lettuce, then halved
one chopped tomato


Oil grill and barbecue lettuce, cut side down, with lid open, until grill marks form on the underside of the lettuce, about 1 minute. 

Transfer to a large plate, drizzle each lettuce boat with 2 tbsp of dressing, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and tomato, serve immediately. 

Dressing will keep well refrigerated up to 3 days.

Greens with Apples Dates and Almonds

A couple of months ago, Jeff and I attended a birthday party where the menu was diverse and incredibly mouth watering. One of the salads was so delicious, that  I was determined to recreate it the next night. It was a blend of shaved brussel sprouts, lettuce and cabbage, shaved parmesan, slivered almonds, sliced apples and dates. I came up with a dressing that I thought would go well with these ingredients, and the result was divine!

I actually found the greens blended and packaged at Trader Joe’s but you could easily add yours separately and then combine with the other ingredients.

  • One bag of mixed greens
  • 2 cups of shaved brussel sprouts
  • 2 cups of shredded white cabbage
