Grilled Simple Caesar Salad


While the anchovies add a deeper flavor to the salad, feel free to omit them if you don't like fish.


  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • Shaved Parmesan cheese

  • 2 anchovy fillets (optional)


  1. Heat a cast-iron grill pan. Brush cut sides of the romaine with olive oil. Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until charred and blackened in a few places, about 2 minutes.

  2. Place the lettuce pieces on a platter. Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, and shaved Parmesan. Garnish with anchovies, if desired.
