Just when the crowd thinks you're done with the grill, surprise them with this; the romaine's leaves char slightly but stay fresh and crisp.
This twist on an old favourite brings new life to a simple Caesar salad, and this easy instant Caesar Salad dressing will soon become your new best friend.
Grilled Vegan Caesar Salad
Makes 4 salads
2 heads of romaine lettuce cut into halves along the long edge. Keep the base of the lettuce in tact so that it doesn't separate out into leaves.
4 large slices of pumpernickel bread
Heat up the Bar-B to medium high. Once hot carefully grill the bread on each side until it has nice grill marks. Remove bread from the grill and rub each slice with half a garlic clove. Next place the romaine halves on the grill cut side down and carefully grill until they have nice grill marks.
Place a piece of bread on the plate, top with a romaine half, grilled side up. Drizzle with Zengarry Caesar Salad Dressing and garnish with caper berries and freshly ground black pepper.
