Grilled Romaine with Roasted Tomatoes + Feta

Let me introduce you to my newest food obsession: grilled salad. When I discover something new, I want to eat it a lot of it and I want it all. the. time. Such has been the case with grilled romaine, as we have been enjoying it every which way. 

It's quick, simple and a nice way to remix an otherwise typical side dish. (and it's still healthy!) The romaine becomes slightly wilted with a hint of smokey flavor, while retaining the perfect amount of crispness. Roasted grape tomatoes add extra oomph, but if you are short on time, this step is certainly not necessary. 

Grilled Romaine with Roasted Tomatoes + Feta

Romaine heart, halved longwise
Grape tomatoes
Crumbled Feta
Good olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt + pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut grape tomatoes in half and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Roast for 15- 20 minutes. 

Preheat grill pan on medium-high heat. Cut romaine hearts in half vertically. Brush flat side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Grill romaine for 2-3 minutes. Top with roasted tomatoes and feta, then finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.


  1. Oh my word. That sounds divine! I'll have to try this soon...thanks for sharing!

  2. I can't wait to try this minus the cheese :)
