  • 2 organic hearts of romaine
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for brushing on the romaine
  • 1/4 cup red onion diced
  • 4 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon diced and cooked
  • 2 cups croutons
  • 8 tbsp homemade caesar salad dressing




  • Throw all the ingredients except for the oil into a blender and blend it up till its nice and smooth.  Add the oil VERY SLOWLY into the top of the blender while the blender is running.  The dressing will get nice and thick.  Put it in a container and keep it in the fridge till your ready to use it.


  • Get all your toppings ready.  Chop and cook the bacon in a hot pan until nice and crispy.  Spoon it out onto paper towel and set aside.  Chop the onions, get out the croutons (or make your own!) and parmesan cheese. 
  • Heat your bbq to medium-high heat.  Slice the romaine hearts in half. You want a half for each person that you are serving.
  • When you bbq is ready, brush each half of romaine with a little olive oil.  Place the cut side down on the grill and grill the romaine hearts for about 3 mins or until you get nice grill marks and some of the lettuce just begins to wilt. Remove from the heat.
  • Drizzle a couple tbps of dressing on each serving, then sprinkle on red onion, cheese, bacon, and croutons.  Serve right away.
