Its that time of the year again. There are all those resolutions (eat healthy, exercise, don't snort), and I have tons of romaine lettuce in the fridge. There are only so many ways you can eat romaine, right?
Until twitter. Susan from the fat free vegan kitchen mentioned making grilled romaine with white balsamic vinegar. I took it from there. Grilled strawberries and romaine with a balsamic reduction. Great salad, perfect dessert with a dollop of icecream (nix the lettuce). Easy and uttterly delicious.
For the reduction, I took 1/4th cup of dark balsamic, placed it in a small saucepan on the stove, brought it to a simmer, turned the heat off and left it on the stove. Ten minutes later, a thick, creamy, super-yum balsamic reduction that could be dessert on its own.
Grill halved romaine hearts and strawberries (I stuck them under the broiler for a minute), drizzle the vinegar over and just eat.
