Papacelle’s Grilled Romaine Salad
When I was first approached about providing recipes for Natural Nutmeg I was excited. My passion for food has always been something I love sharing. To me there is no better place to share that with than the readers of Natural Nutmeg. We share in a belief of wholesome natural foods that are sustainable, healthy and above all delicious! I look forward to providing recipes that you enjoy making as much as you will enjoy eating.
Today, I will be showing our most popular salad at Papacelle, our Grilled Romaine. This delicious salad will be perfect for those warming spring nights when you are itching to fire up the grill, pour yourself a nice glass of Chardonnay and watch the sun set.
As with all of our recipes you will notice that the recipe will be simple and will have very few ingredients. Because of this simplicity, the freshness and quality of each ingredient will be extremely important.
Dish: Grilled Romaine
Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

A grill (gas grill will work, but the grilled flavor really shines through with a wood fired grill). I have also tried using a cast iron pan on med-high heat which works just as well as a gas grill.
