Holy salad!! How have I never had this before?! And holy salad dressing!! How have I never made this before?!

Clearly, you can see that I was floored by this salad. A simple 3 ingredient salad topped off with an insanely easy vinaigrette makes for a deliciously healthy meal! And served with baked flounder… drooling…

Grilled Romaine with Caesar Vinaigrette

2 heads of romaine

6 pieces of bacon, crumbled

1 tomato, diced

4 tbsp evoo

4 tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese

2 clove garlic, minced

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

1. In a small bowl or mason jar (works great for shaking), mix all ingredients; well, minus the romaine, bacon, and tomato. Give it a good shake or whisk.

2. Turn on grill to medium-high heat and let it heat for about 5 minutes. Cut romaine hearts down the middle lengthwise, leaving the stem on. Spray all sides of the romaine with cooking spray or lightly brush a little olive oil over each piece. Grill over direct heat for a minute or two and rotate until all sides are starting to char.
