Char Grilled Hearts of Romaine with Goat Cheese and Pinot Grigio Vinaigrette

The little bit of char on the romaine gives it an enormous flavor leap. It’s perfect for a summer salad or for Valentine’s day.
Serves 6

Ingredients

    PINOT GRIGIO VINAIGRETTE
    • 1½ cups (375 mL) Pinot Grigio
    • 2 shallots, minced
    • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) rice vinegar
    • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
    • 3/4 cup (175 mL) olive oil
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground
    • Black pepper

    • 3 hearts of romaine, halved lengthwise
    • Extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 ounces (125 g) goat cheese, crumbled
    • 1 cup (250 mL) garlic-flavored croutons
     

Directions

Prepare the vinaigrette:
In a small saucepan, bring wine to a simmer over medium heat; simmer until reduced by half. Add shallots, vinegar, lemon zest and lemon juice. Gradually whisk in olive oil, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Prepare a hot fire in your grill.

Brush cut side of romaine with olive oil. Place cut side down on the grill. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes, or until outer lettuce leaves are charred and there are good grill marks on the cut side. (Do not close the grill lid or lettuce will wilt.)

Serve each half romaine sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese and croutons and drizzled with vinaigrette.
 
TIP:
Do not trim the core of the lettuce, or several of the outer leaves will fall off.
