  • 2 romaine hearts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (about 450 degrees F).
  2. Slice the romaine hearts in half lengthwise and brush with the olive oil. Place the romaine hearts, cut side down, on the grill and cook for 5 minutes, until charred and wilted.
  3. Transfer to a platter and top with the dressing, crumbled blue cheese, and tomato slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve.


  • If you don’t have access to a grill, you can use a grill pan on the stove, preheated over high heat for 5 minutes.
