This summer Nathan and I spent a long weekend at parent's house in Wisconsin. It never fails when I'm with my mom that I learn some new cooking trick or see some new gadget she's using that I need to have. This trip was no different. We did quite a bit of grilling that weekend and when we were preparing stuff for grilled salad, she whipped out an oil mister. I knew immediately this would be a kitchen game changer. Sometimes when pouring oil from the bottle it's easy to overuse and pour too much out. This is the perfect fix to that. It sprays a light coating and keeps you from drenching your food in olive oil. It's great sprayed over vegetables prior to grilling or baking, and is even good to use over a salad if you're wanting a light olive oil dressing.
Lately I've been pretty obsessed with grilled salad. It takes a couple extra minutes to prepare, but it's worth every second. Thanks to the oil mister it's a lot easier too!
To make ||
Cut a full romaine heart in half and using the oil mister spray both sides. Grill both sides of lettuce on low. About 2-3 minutes per side.
Add toppings of your choice. I'm currently loving Marzetti's light poppy-seed dressing. It's so light and fresh. Perfect for summer. I drizzled that over my salad with tomatoes, avocado and of course salt & pepper. Grilled chicken added in would be yummy, or even some crunchy toppings!
