Grilled Romaine Chicken Caesar Salad

Grilling sturdy hearts of romaine imparts smoky flavor to this popular salad green. You'll love the contrasting textures of the lightly wilted outer leaves and the crisp center. Be sure to keep the core intact to hold the leaves together on the grill.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 romaine heart half, about 4 ounces chicken, 1/4 cup croutons, and 3 tablespoons dressing)
