Greek Salad with Grilled Romaine

Fully of smoky flavor, crunchy hearts, and crispy edges, this flavorful salad is the type that makes people ask for seconds.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 11 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 heads romaine lettuce
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 12 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
  • 6 pepperoncini, chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (A balsamic reduction would work too if you have one on hand)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  • Slice the heads of romaine in quarters lengthwise. Trim away excess at the bottom, but leave enough so that all the leaves stay stuck together.
  • Drizzle the oil over the quarters, trying to get between the leaves when possible. Add salt and pepper as desired.
  • Place the lettuce cut-side down on the grill and cook until wilted and charred, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other cut-side for 3 minutes more.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle on the olives, peppers, and feta. Drizzle on the balsamic.
