How to Make Hearts of Romaine Salad -- Some Unlikeky Pairings
- Add your blue cheese to the romaine along with the other additives of your choice. I like a mix of chewy and crunchy additives such as: Raisins (Dark or Golden or both), Craisins (the dried Cranberries), and Walnuts or Pecans. Slivered Almonds and/or Sunflower seeds would also work fine. In addition sliced Strawberries, Grapes cut in half or Mandarin Oranges can be added to the medley. Also diced apples or pears would be a welcomed addition. What other additives can you think of? Make it your own.
- Drizzle the salad with a liberal sprinkling of Balsamic Vinegar and serve with crackers or breads of your choice, this is an excellent accompaniment to a red meat dish. I make a meal of this offering and require nothing else. A hearty Red Wine would pair well with this salad. 1/4th of the head filled the plate for a single serving. Happy Cooking, Gary
