  • 4 - 6 romaine hearts washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped or even better use garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons dill, chopped (chives would be also great)
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil for grilled the romaine hearts


  • Make your dressing first, so it can develop the flavors.
  • Mix mayo, sour cream, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, herbs and salt and pepper. Cover and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Heat up your grill or stovetop griddle.
  • Lightly brush the cut sides of the romaine with avocado oil.
  • Place the romaine on the grill/griddle cut-side down and cook until grill marks form and the leaves are slightly charred. About 1 to 3 minutes.
  •  Drizzle the romaine with the dressing.
