    Nice change-up -- always a good thing for us to make salads just a little different one from the next, to keep them interesing. Had to thin the dressing with just a bit of buttermilk. No need to coat all sides with cooking spray. Served before CL's seared scallops with linguine.

    This is great! I didn't change a thing. It reminds me of a dish we've had at our favorite restaurant.

    Very tasty! Love the slightly charred taste on the romaine...brings out a lot of flavor. Would be fine with any creamy dressing, such as pre-made ranch or blue cheese if you were crunched for time.

    This is an outstanding salad, and now we only serve Romaine when it's grilled - such a sweet and buttery flavor! Added a bit more blue cheese and used red onion. So tasty!

    Absolutely love this salad. We too now only serve Romaine when its grilled. The flavor is fantastic, like tara31 said "sweet and butter" but with the charred edge - sublime. I added 2 more tbsp more blue cheese (used lower fat crumbled blue cheese) so its a total of 5 and omit the garlic. I've also subbed dried onions when I don't have shallots. I also just spray the cut side. It's a real keeper and I've been serving it to all our summer guests.

    This is always a crowd pleaser!! Even my picky eaters eat this because it's not "a salad" to them...??!! After having made this several times throughout the year, I agree with the other reviews, no need to coat each side, just the cut side. Also added more bleu cheese and crumbled bacon; and mixed shallots/or onions & garlic, balsamic vinegar, and a dollup of reduced-fat pre-made bleu cheese dressing as the dressing. Definitely a family favorite!!
