Based on the BLT, this hearty Charred BLT Salad starts with Romaine; then strips of prosciutto, crunchy bread cubes, and cherry tomatoes are scattered on top--finishing with blue cheese that begins to melt when it hits the warm lettuce.
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut crosswise into ribbons
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil; swirl to coat. Add prosciutto; cook 4 minutes or until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove prosciutto with a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Add bread to pan; cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently. Combine prosciutto and bread. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add tomatoes; cook 5 minutes or until skins begins to split, stirring frequently. Pour tomatoes and olive oil into a small bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Coat cut sides of lettuce with cooking spray. Place lettuce, cut side down, on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Cook 2 minutes or until well marked. Place 1 lettuce half on each of 4 plates. Divide prosciutto mixture and tomato mixture among servings. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon onions and 1/2 ounce cheese.

Wow..made this for a concert picnic. Prepared everything and then assembled it there. It traveled well and was delicious! I used bacon and heirloom cherry tomatoes. They were so good charred. We will make this again and again!
Delicious!! This was a big hit. My 10 yr old even had seconds! I did not have blue cheese so I used Feta. We smashed the tomatoes on top to make a bit of a dressing. I will definitely make this again. Maybe try some avocado or kalamata olives to put a different twist on it.
