No Farmers’ Market last Saturday means Killdeer Food Company has an excess of lettuce this week, and will be offering romaine hearts – three crispy and blanched centre of the lettuce. This is another one to try on the grill! Drizzle with olive oil and salt and sear it on medium heat – the centre stays protected and warmly crispy, while the outside gets salty and caramelized. You can stay the Caesar course with the dressing and use something creamy and cheesy or use something a little sweet like a honey dijon.
