I made the dressing for this salad with my Blendtec and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Putting together the salad just takes a few minutes when you make the dressing ahead of time! To grill the salad, use your gas grill outside or a grill pan inside. The salad just takes a few minutes to grill and serve immediately!

1heart of romaine lettuce, rinsed and cut in half lengthwise

Add ingredients to Blendtec jar in order listed and secure lid. Select "Dressing" and serve. The dressing tastes best when you refrigerate it overnight in a sealed container - the ingredients are allowed to marry together.
How to Grill Salad
If using a gas grill, turn on the gas and turn the heat to high. Let the grill heat up for at least 10 minutes. If using a grill pan inside, heat grill pan on medium to medium high for 3 to 5 minutes.
Salt and pepper the insides of your romaine lettuce halves. Sprinkle olive oil on the halves, if you wish. Add to hot grill or grill pan and cook for about 1 to 3 minutes tops. Flip to grill the other side for 1 to 2 minutes and you're done. Serve immediately with caesar dressing and parmesan cheese on top.
*Store the dressing in the refrigerator for about a week. If serving as a side salad, one whole heart can serve up to 4 or 5 people. For an entire meal, it serves 1 to 2 people and try grilling some chicken (or use leftovers from my chicken slow cooker recipe) to serve with it too!
*If you're worried about the raw egg, be sure to use pasteurized eggs.
