Heart Healthy Grilled Romaine Lettuce Recipe
Preheat the grill to high heat.
Remove the leafy outer leaves of each head of romaine. With a knife, slice down the center lengthwise of each head of lettuce, straight down through the core.
Drizzle both sides of the lettuce halves with 1 Tbsp of the olive oil.
Grill the romaine halves, flat side down, for about 3 minutes per side, or until slightly charred and warm.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, shallot, honey, salt and black pepper.
Remove lettuce from heat. Arrange the lettuce halves on a platter and drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle the lettuce with the bacon and blue cheese. Serve immediately.
