Grilled Romaine with Poppyseed Dressing

3 Dec

Tonight we were celebrating our  31st anniversary. OMGS! Have we really been married that long? Maybe our healthy diets have made it possible for us to put up with each other this long. Then again, it’s the wine! Tonight, we had wonderful wine and I wanted to try something different. I grilled romaine and topped it of with poppy seed dressing. The whole meal was great, but we both really enjoyed the different salad.

  • 2 heads romaine lettuce 
  • olive oil

Rinse and pat dry the lettuce. Cut the romaine heads in half lengthwise. Brush surface with olive oil and grill about 3 minutes on each side.


  • zest and juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds

Mix all the ingredients together. Drizzle over grilled romaine.
