How to Pick the Sweetest Watermelon Every Time

Watermelon the Perfect Side Dish for Any Summer Party

With summer finally here and weekend BBQ’s on on the agenda, I often find myself at the grocery store looking for a quick and easy side dish.  Sliced Watermelon is my “go to” dish for most of the backyard shindigs.  Watermelon is easy, inexpensive and takes 15 minutes to prep with no hot oven heating up my kitchen!  Making Watermelon the perfect compliment to any summer meal.

Grilled Romaine Salad

Quick and Simply Grilled Salad! 

Course Salad
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 8

Ingredients

  • 2 Heads Romaine Lettuce Not just the hearts the whole head
  • 1 cup Italian or Balsamic Dressing of your choice
  • 1/2 onion Sliced (optional) Yellow or Red is fine

Instructions

  1. Slice the Heads of Lettuce down the middle in half,   As well as the onion.  Place on Medium Heat Grill.  Grill for 5 minutes or until Grill marks.  Do not over grill, the salad will be wilted. 

  2. When you get the grill marks you desire, remove from heat and chop immediately.  I slice the onion very thin,  I don't like it to overpower the salad. 

  3. After chopping toss with dressing of your choice.  I use Olive Garden Dressing I like the sweetness of it against the char of the grill.  I have used Balsamic before that also works.  

  4. Serve warm and Enjoy!
