What? Grilled Romaine. You must be kidding. That was my reaction when my friend Crispin suggested we try making this unique salad for a dinner party we were hosting. Unfortunately we had other salad plans so I tabled the idea for a few days and decided to try it out last night. Okay, this is not only amazing on the palette, but so so easy to prepare.
Cut the Romaine in half lengthwise, place cut side down on a hot grill for about 1 minute. Remove and drizzle with olive oil, squeeze a lemon onto the greens, add salt and pepper to taste and then sprinkle crumbled blue cheese on top and serve.
My guests loved picking it up and eating it with their hands. They also loved the flavor.
