Less Is More Summer Salad & Grilling Romaine Lettuce. Say what?

I love salads, especially in the summer. When making salads,  I usually get carried away and combine every nut, fruit, cheese and green I can find. Anyone else have this problem?

Recently, however, I have been going with the less is more mentality and really enjoying it.

My most recent salad:

  • shredded brussels sprouts (chopped with big knife or mandolin) 
  • arugula 
  • watermelon
  • feta


  • EVOO
  • fresh chopped rosemary and thyme
  • balsamic vinegar
  • small amount of mustard
  • pepper and little salt (since feta will already be salty)

Have you ever tried grilling romaine lettuce?!  

Neither have I. Under last night! Camera man and I made it as an appetizer.  (Camera man below on our back deck getting ready to grill!)


  • Wash your romaine lettuce. Cut in half. Dry very very well

Season with

  • 2 tbs oil 
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
  • add any kind of herb like rosemary, oregano or thyme.
  • Grill for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Its very yummy. What is your favorite thing to grill?

And a MUST try video to work your THIGH BUTT. Do this video 3X's a week and give that THUTT a lift :)
