This is awesome. I made this for a casual dinner party for 10, tripled the recipe and had no left overs! My guests couldn't wait to get the recipe. I've served it with and without the oven-dried tomatoes. I had more than 1/2 the oil left over from the tomtoes, so I use 1/2 as much now - cuts down on the fat content also.
I thought this recipe sounded interesting but it was not good & my husband said it loses all the nutritional value by cooking it. The only good part was the tomatoes, I did use that oil to marinate shrimp before putting on the BBQ.
I made this salad for New Year's eve. It was a big hit. Everyone thought the idea of grilling the romaine was very strange, and I was pretty hesitant myself. It turned out wonderful and I have made it a few times since. It is a bit complicated considering it is a salad but well worth it. I also topped it with sime sesame seeds.
This salad is wonderful with a small grilled filet mignon. I like to slice the steak and add it across the top. We also like it with a little parmasen cheese with crumbled garlic croutons. The dressing is very good. We don't use sugar, but sugar substitute (your choice) to help with my diabetic husband.
I did not like the grilled romaine lettuce (and neither did any of my guests) but I must keep the recipe in my file because the dressing is DELICIOUS.
This is simply the best salad I have ever eaten. I can't get enough of it. I personally omit all of the sugar as I find the balsamic sweet enough. I would give this a 10 if I could...
Something delicious and new! Really - if you enjoy salad, try this! I didn't have olive oil, so I rubbed a little butter, salt and pepper on the halves. Sinful, but amazing! I served the grilled romaine with garden fresh tomatoes and mom's old dressing mixture of ketchup and mayo drizzled lightly over the top. Perfect side for a grilled dinner. Trust me... this is a keeper!
I tried grilled romaine hearts at a restaurant and loved it so much I had to make it at home! I didn't use shallots for the vinaigrette - i just made a simple 2:1 balsamic vinaigrette with added honey, a little lemon juice, garlic, and italian seasoning. I topped the hearts feta cheese and red onion. I know this isn't the recipe but I still wanted to put up a review. Also, I don't find it necessary to put the olive oil on the lettuce before grilling - it's just added calories, the lettuce is fine on it's own. A lot of the bitterness in the thicker parts of the leaves go away with cooking.
