Grilled Romaine with Feta
Diabetic Living Magazine
“Next time you're preparing meat or fish on the grill, try this grilled salad recipe. Romaine lettuce is a perfect choice for grilling and it's ready in just a few minutes. Slightly charred and wilted, the taste is enhanced with a simple lemon dressing and a sprinkling of feta cheese.”
⅓ cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper
2 hearts of romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise
Nonstick olive oil cooking spray
¼ cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1In a screw-top jar combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and set aside. Lightly coat cut sides of hearts of romaine with cooking spray.
2For a gas or charcoal grill, place romaine lettuce, cut sides down, on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill, covered, for 1 to 3 minutes or until grill marks develop on the romaine and the romaine is slightly wilted.
3Place each romaine half on a serving plate. Shake lemon mixture well to combine and drizzle evenly over grilled romaine. Sprinkle with feta cheese.
