Yesenia made these grilled romaine hearts for our Boo(z)k(e) Club last week and I liked them so much I hounded her for the recipe. Although as you will see, I’m posting this more as a summer BBQ inspiration than a recipe to follow to the T. You can use gorgonzola or blue cheese and you can use fat free sour cream and mayo to lighten up your dressing.
Romaine Hearts (1 half heart per person)- Cut in half and drizzled lightly with olive oil; Place romaine cut side down on low heat grill- Grill til just tender (still want some crunch) about 5 minutes, then turn over and grill 2 more minutes.
Dressing (Depending on how much you want, I just eyeball):
- Large dollop of Sour Cream
- Small dollop of Mayo
- Gorgonzola (or blue cheese) crumbles (as much as you want)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Splash of Lowfat Milk to make the dressing thinner
