Grilled brussels sprouts salad

I am seriously in love with summer — the good weather, pool days and, most of all, the grilling that takes place with close family and friends. I've been using the grill at least three to four times a week if not more.

A couple of summers ago, I experienced grilled romaine lettuce leaves for the first time and fell head over heels for them. This summer I'm making grilled Brussels sprouts with a quick homemade dressing.

Fire up the grill, and let's get cooking.

Serves 2-4

Ingredients:

  • 13 ounces Brussels sprouts, quartered
  • 3 romaine lettuce leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cranberries
  • 3 slices baked bacon, chopped

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from 1/2 an orange

Directions:

  1. Preheat the grill to 300 degrees F, and set a grill basket on the grates.
  2. Chop up the Brussels sprouts, and place them in the grill basket. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then add the lettuce leaves. Cook for an additional minute, and then remove from the grill.
