Salad on the Grill

Ever grilled Romaine lettuce?  It’s quite delicious and gives me one more reason to light up the grill and cook outside.  Plus I had some white truffle oil that I was dying to try. Like Truffle Oil?  Try this one from Degredient.  Now I know all about Gordon Ramsay fussing about crappy truffle oils being nothing more than cheap perfume and believe me I’ve had plenty of overly powerful truffle oils but I really like this one, it doesn’t knock you over with forced mushroom aromas.  Read more about it on their website.

I took some local tomatoes, sweet onions, a straight neck yellow squash and a head of Romaine, drizzled with Olive oil, salt and pepper…

and arranged them around the outside of the charcoal pile

I let the veggies cook for about seven or eight minutes then placed the skirt steak on the grill. The steak had salt, pepper, Dijon mustard and lemon juice on it. Since skirt is thin, it went right on top of the heat source

When the steak went on the grill, our dog was suddenly curious, not so much when she thought I was just grilling lettuce

And in no time I had a very nice Sunday Supper for me and Amy.

I finished this meal with some white truffle oil from Degredient. A sprinkle of sea salt, a toasted baguette and my wife’s company. Delicious!

    Endive is a good one to grill…..I throw endive, peppers, onions and zucchinis on the grill, lightly char them, and then chop them up and toss them w/ balsamic and good olive oil to make my chopped veggie salad. It’s a great dinner for summer.
