Caesar Romaine Wedge Salad

So I have been racking my brain, trying to figure out what to do with this week’s Grow. Eat. $ave. post about lettuce. I feel like I’ve been eating or talking about salads for weeks. (See Strawberry Spinach Salad [3], Asian Spinach Salad with Mandarins [4], plus I’ve been making lots of the salad dressings that are in my Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook [5]over the past 2 months!)

But I wanted to do something with either buttercrisp lettuce, or Romaine…as those were the two varieties that I grew this year. Then it dawned on me…rather than an iceberg wedge…why not a Romaine wedge?!?

I’m sure you’ve been doing this for years…but I haven’t. This Romaine wedge concept is new to this girl.

It’s simple, takes 2 minutes to prepare, and it will leave you wanting another!
