I got the idea for this from one of my favorite restaurants. It's called Cafe Muse and if you live in the area, you simply must go there. It's in Royal Oak and we went there for dinner with some friends and Moe had this as her salad. She gave me a bite and I couldn't get over how good it tasted.
I finally got the urge to make this myself and here's what I did:
- Romaine Hearts
- Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
Wash one of the romaine hearts. Slice down the middle, keeping the root attached to hold the leaves together. Dry as well as you can.
Heat a griddle or pan on medium. Brush one side of the romaine with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, place the oiled side down on the griddle. Brush the other side with olive oil and season. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes until it browns a bit. Remove and sprinkle thoroughly with grated Parmesan Cheese.
Drizzle with dressing of your choice. I used the Lemon Vinaigrette recipe I made a couple weeks ago and it was perfect.
