GRILLED AVOCADO & ROMAINE CAESAR SALAD RECIPE

Posted on

Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 large head of romaine, quartered lengthwise, leaving the stem intact
  • 1 firm avocado, pitted and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil or other high-heat oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Creamy Hemp Caesar Dressing

  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons shelled hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed and peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat grill on high.
  2. Meanwhile, add the romaine and avocado to a large baking tray and lightly brush them with the grapeseed oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Once hot, carefully place the veggies directly onto the grill. You’ll want the avocados to be flesh-side down. Grill for 2 minutes and then rotate. Repeat until grilled on all sides. Return the veggies to the tray and let cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, combine all dressing ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  5. To serve, divide the romaine spears and avocado between plates and drizzle with as much or as little dressing as desired.
