Ingredients

Grilled salad:

  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) canola oil
  • 2 heads Romaine lettuce halved and divided 
  • 1 English cucumber cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 2 slices stale bread of choice(e.g. whole wheat flatbread, sourdough, etc.)
  • 1 cup (250 ml) cherry tomatoes halved
  • ½ lemon
  • 4 anchovy filets optional

Dressing Ingredients: 

  • 2 leaves Romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 oz parmesan cheese thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Wash all produce under running cool water. Remove 2 leaves from the Romaine lettuce and set aside to be used in the salad dressing.
  • Turn your BBQ onto high heat and lightly oil grill. Grill Romaine lettuce, cucumbers, and bread directly on the grill for 1 minute, rotating halfway. In a grill tray/basket, grill tomatoes and lemon half for 1 minute.
  • Remove all ingredients from the grill and let cool. Dice the cucumber into large chunks and squeeze the grilled lemon half over the cherry tomatoes.
  • Make the crouton crumb: Blend the bread slices and optional anchovies in a food processor or blender and set aside.
  • Make the dressing: Blend all salad dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender, until smooth (except salt and pepper). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Assemble the salad: Place grilled lettuce on the bottom, followed by the grilled diced cucumbers and tomatoes. Top with avocado dressing, fresh avocado slices, parmesan cheese, and crouton crumb.
