Vegan Grilled Club Salad

Summer is almost over, but that won’t stop me from grilling in my backyard! I don’t know about you, but I absolutely fell in love with my new grill this year and I can’t get enough of creating new recipes I have never tried before. Anything can taste delicious over the grill if you have the right techniques and flavors. For this recipe, I tried to replicate a club sandwich, using similar ingredients and cooking them in completely different ways. This quick and super easy recipe was inspired by a club sandwich of course, but I had to try something new and turn it into a grilled salad!

Pro Tips:

  • When Grilling with your vegetables, don’t put the heat on too high – this will burn your lettuce too fast.
  • Do all the preparations in advance before finishing the sauce to make it easier to toss everything in right after grilling the vegetables.
  • You can use any of your favorite bread to go with this recipe – if you are not a baguette person of course.
  • If you are feeling extra fancy, throw in your favorite herbs (basil is a good choice) to add Earthiness and lightness to compliment the warm vegetables.

Let's get creative with the grill and cook more than just break and meat, turning smoked vegetables to a main and everything else as a side. If you have never grilled your romaine salads before, this is one you don't want to miss out on.
