thanks for braving the elements to make me a healthy dinner.  you're the best JS.

Grilled Romaine Hearts w/ Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing

2 heads of romaine lettuce, washed, trimmed, sliced lengthwise
olive oil
salt and pepper

1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
salt & pepper to taste

sourdough croutons for serving.


to make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until creamy.  adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.  if you find the dressing is still too thick, thin it out with a little water.  set aside.
to grill the romaine hearts, heat the grill to medium-low.  brush the cut side of the lettuce with oil and season with salt and pepper.  place the lettuce face down on the grill until char marks appear and lettuce begins to wilt, approximately 1 minute.   flip the hearts over and grill on the other side for 1 minute more.  remove from heat.
pour prepared dressing over the lettuce and top with croutons.

serves 4
