Broiled Hearts of Romaine

Broiled Hearts of Romaine

This is my friend Jill's recipe.  She served them with a poached egg on top, and some bread as a vegetarian dinner.  I think they are great for a side dish or salad course for a meal.  I think these would also be great with a little dijon mustard and/ or garlic in the dressing, and maybe some parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  I think Jill baked these at 450 for 10 minutes instead of broiling them, or you could even put them on a grill.

-2 hearts of romaine, sliced in half, rinsed, and water patted/ shook off
-1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
-1 Tbsp lemon juice
-1 Tbsp olive oil
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Lay romaine face up a greased baking sheet.  Whisk together remaining ingredients.  Brush dressing over the hearts of romaine.  Broil 5 minutes, or until lettuce is wilted and begins to char.
