Grilled Romaine Salad

It’s grilling season! Grilling embodies so much more than food. In means hanging out in the backyard, more leisurely laid back moments, friends and family, children having the opportunity to have less structure to their day and time to daydream, warm weather, and parties!

Today I am sharing a new recipe for Grilled Romaine Salad. To make this salad you wash and halve Romaine Lettuce and brush it with Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper. Grilling gives the salad a mild, smokey flavor and also tenderizes the lettuce. I topped it simply with precooked bacon, and some chopped red pepper and scallions. Then I drizzled it with a zippy red wine vinaigrette! Here’s the recipe!

Place the Romaine cut side down on your grill, close the lid and grill 3 to 5 minutes until there are nice grill lines on your Romaine and it is to your satisfaction. It will be slightly wilted.

Remove from the grill and plate your Romaine. Sprinkle with Scallions, Red Bell Pepper and Bacon Crumbles. Drizzle with the Red Wine Vinaigrette and additional Sea Salt and Pepper if desired. Serve warm.

Grilled Zucchini, Tomatoes and Scallions with Fresh Basil and Dill

On a beautiful Summer evening, I don’t want to be in the kitchen. Did you ever notice with grilling, you get to sit and relax while the food cooks more than when you are preparing a meal in the kitchen?

Grilled vegetables also taste really delicious, they aren’t mushy, and you can combine ones that have relatively the same cooking time, toss them with a marinade and seasonings and come up with endless one dish vegetable sides.

Here is a fairly quick recipe for grilled zucchini, tomatoes and scallions I find Summery and a crowd pleaser.

Grilled Venison Pork Burgers

Grilled Venison 50/50 Burgers

I found some fantastic ground venison at the local market here in Northern Michigan to make burgers with.  I did a fifty/fifty burger using pastured ground pork because venison is very lean and the pork makes them juicy!  We grilled these last night for dinner, and they were really, really good!

Grilled Venison 50/50 Burgers

Ingredients:

1 Pound Ground Venison

1 Pound Ground Pastured Pork

1 tsp. Allspice

1 tsp. Himalayan Pink Salt

1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

1 Tablespoon Garlic Olive Oil

1/2 tsp. Ground Sage

1/4 tsp. Thyme

1 Tablespoon Djon Mustard

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a large mixing bowl.  Divide into 8 – one inch thick patties.  Grill until just cooked through 165 degrees.  Eat ’em up!
