Grilled Polenta Salad
We whipped this one up as an easy side dish. It is a play on a simple salad using the polenta as sort of a “crouton”.
3 cups of water
1 cup of Yellow Polenta (Yellow Corn Meal/Grits)
Bring water an salt to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Gradually add polenta to water and simmer until very thick. Pour cooked mixture into a square 9×9″ baking pan and let cool. Cut polenta into 8 slices. Place slice on grill or non-stick griddle with a spray of olive oil to help browning and prevent sticking. Grill until outside is crisp. Add to plate and top with salad mixture.
1 container of herb salad mix
1 T Red Wine Vinegar
1 T First Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Optional)
1 t garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together vinegar olive oil and garlic powder. Toss with herb salad mix and add salt and pepper to taste.
