  • romaine lettuce
    2 bunch
  • white balsamic or champagne vinegar
    1 1/2 tbsp
  • Dijon Mustard
    1 tsp
  • garlic (finely minced)
    1 clove
  • olive oil
    2 tbsp
  • salt
    1/4 tsp
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • black pepper
    1/4 tsp


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium. Coat the grill rack with cooking spray.

  2. Slice each romaine heart in half lengthwise, keeping the root end intact.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, mustard, and garlic. In a thin stream, slowly add the olive oil, and whisk until the dressing is emulsified. Stir in the salt and black pepper.

  4. Add the romaine hearts to the grill, cut side down. Brush some of the vinaigrette over the romaine hearts. Grill, uncovered, for about 2 minutes. Using tongs, carefully turn the romaine hearts and brush with the remaining dressing; grill for 1 minute. Remove the romaine hearts from the grill and place on a plate to serve.
