Grilled Halibut with Grilled Romaine and Cherry Tomatoes in a Sherry Vinaigrette

I love summer grilling!  When the warm weather arrives I typically use the grill for all my summer cooking.  So even the veggies, and sometimes even the salad, gets thrown on the grill. 

Grilled lettuce & radicchio are actually quite delicious and a great side dish for grilled fish & chicken.  When I make the sherry vinaigrette I throw it on everything… the veggies, lettuce, fish, mushrooms, etc.  It’s also great over grilled summer tomatoes.

Keep dinner simple… and enjoy the flavors of life!  Happy Cooking!
