Sometimes the smallest details make the biggest difference. Raw Romaine lettuce is a delicious, nutritious and crispy addition to any salad. However, when you cut a head of fresh Romaine in half and cook it on a grill for a few minutes… magic happens. The flavors intensify and lend an interesting dimension to an otherwise basic salad.

If you don’t have access to a grill – no problem. The directions below explain how to get similar results in your oven.

Ingredients

  • Salad Ingredients
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette Ingredients

Step by step method

  • Set your oven to broil.

  • Cut the Romaine heads in half and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place under the pre-heated broiler for a couple minutes (keeping a close eye on it because lettuce will burn quickly). Remove once the lettuce is a nice, golden brown.

  • Add all the ingredients for the balsamic vinaigrette together in a glass bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine. Allow vinaigrette to sit for at least half an hour to give the flavors a chance to meld.

  • Place ½ browned Romaine head on each plate and top with 2 oz. of chicken and 1 oz. of goat cheese. Divide sliced red cabbage and chopped pecans among the four plates. Drizzle each salad with a little of the vinaigrette and serve immediately.
