Ah summer! There are two meals that truly say summer – one is the grill and the other is salad. In this recipe, I wanted to combine the two in a really unique way to create this Grilled Wedge Salad Skewers Recipe.
Grilled Romaine Salads are one of my favorite things in the world. I love the smokiness it brings to the salad while still maintaining a crunch. That was my biggest inspiration. And this Grilled Wedge Salad Skewers Recipe is smoky, crunchy, and perfect for outdoors because it’s on a skewer! The skewer makes it really fun for kids too and easy to eat outdoors.
These Grilled Wedge Salad Skewers are so fun to make and very quick and easy. This is about the fastest thing that you can put on the grill and only need to remain on the grill for a couple of minutes. The trick is to get your grill very hot and put the skewers at the hottest part of the grill.[Tweet “”Grilling takes the formality out of entertaining.

That way you will have all the rich and delicious smokiness from the grill with all the cold, crisp crunch of a wedge salad.[Tweet “Lazy summer days are complete with picnics and sunshine http://bit.ly/29GO5oJ #recipe #food”]
Grilled Wedge Salad Skewers Recipe
- 12 Wooden Skewers soak them for 30 minutes before using
- 1 head Iceberg Lettuce
- 1 carton Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
- 1 packet Bacon
- 1 Red Onion
- 1 Avocado
- 1 bottle Litehouse Blue Cheese Dressing
- Cook the bacon. You can cook it your preferred way only need to bring them to a chewy consistency. Then chop the bacon in to 1-2 inch squares.
- Chop the iceberg lettuce, avocado and red onion into large chunks.
- Layer the lettuce, tomato, onion and bacon onto the wooden skewers. Don't add the avocado. We'll add that at the end!
- Add the skewers to the grill. I added the skewers to the hottest part of the grill right above the coals. I only cooked them for about 1 minute and then flipped them to the other side. You know they are ready when you get some beautiful grill marks and the edges of the lettuce look cooked.
- Remove the skewers from the grill, add the avocado to the ends of each skewer.
- Drizzle with Litehouse Blue Cheese Dressing.
