I didn't do the tomato part of this recipe because most of the family doesn't like roasted tomatoes unless I make soup with them. I had sundried tomatos if anyone really wanted them. I've never had grilled romaine before and this was a really tasty and different way to do a common vegetable. I cut the hearts in half lengthwise but I made the mistake of cutting off the hard end first and should have left it on so it would hold the heart together better on the grill. No matter, it still turned out great but my poor husband was chasing romaine leaves all over the grill. I brushed the hearts with EVOO and freshly ground sea salt and black pepper. It was all I could do to keep from eating them before they hit the grill! The dressing was very easy, thicker than I thought it would be but probably because I used a little less olive oil than called for. It was very good and I love the balsamic and shallot flavor in dressings. It made a lot more than I would put on a single salad so, I have plenty left to use on other salads. My son dipped his grilled chicken in the dressing and thought that was good. It would probably make an excellent marinade too. I'll be grilling more romaine in the future, it's a nice alternative to regular old salad.
