The romaine was topped with tomatoes, rasberries and mandarin oranges.  The dressing was a simple mixture of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  The olive oil I used was especially good.  I purchased it last weekend while in Montreal to get Schwartz spices for the rub exchange.

    That is beautiful.  I really like what you did with the salad.  I am going to steal this for sure. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @Randy1 Only good things!  A total of about two tablespoons of olive oil...

    @paqman - sorry for not telling you earlier, tried the dressing you posted a few days ago - but could not remember where I got it. Excellent!
    Costco has 6 hearts for under $4 - this is a great way to use them up (only two of us)
    Nice looking fillet and salad!

    With everything that gets cooked around here, is it sad to say that grilling Romain is on my need to try cook list?

    @henapple and @Aviator - I just slice the romaine in half, drizzle a little olive oil on the cut side, sprinkle some sea salt and gril 30-90 seconds per side until the color is to my liking. I like some char so I go about 90 seconds but SWMBO preffers 30-45 seconds. Go easy on the olive oil because if you put too much it will flare up and give a nasty taste. Try to keep the dome closed as much as possibles to avoid flares. Then you just add dressing and toppings that you like. As @Skiddymarker says, a pack of 6 hearts is about 4$ at costco. I can't believe I did not try this before...

    LOL, if you had told me a few weeks ago that I would have grilled romaine 5 days in a row, I would have laughed at you.

    @paqman - ever used a Misto?
    SWMBO gave me one four or five years ago. It works great for misting Romaine with EVOO. You can get a fine spray and no drips when you turn it over, better penetration between the leaves as well.

    That's a great idea! I have one that I did not use in years.
