Enjoy this seasonal dish, inspired by the work of Joshua Wissman and his Slim Palate recipe: Grilled Romaine Toasted with Almonds.

Paired with such a yummy dairy-free condiment, this dish is truly to die for.



  • Make a loaf of bread, following the list of instructions on the back of the Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix. 
  • Once the bread is finished baking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.
  • Dice the bread into 1-inch cubes, and spread the cubes out evenly onto a baking sheet.
  • Toast the bread cubes at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, or until they become crispy and golden.
  • Preheat a gas grill to high heat.
  • Slice each romaine head in half and brush both sides with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
  • Place the romaine on the hot grill grates for 2-4 minutes each side.
  • Toss the almonds into a small skillet over medium heat. Lightly toast the pieces, stirring them occasionally to prevent them from burning until they’re slightly browned.
  • Drizzle Primal Kitchen Caesar Dressing over the heads of romaine, and finish with a sprinkle of roasted almonds.
  • Enjoy!
