Grilled Romaine with Avocado-Lime Dressing
Preheat grill to medium-high.Advertisement
Puree avocado, buttermilk, lime juice, oil, cumin and salt in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Cut romaine hearts in half lengthwise, leaving root ends intact. Grill the romaine, cut-side down, until lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve topped with the dressing, tomatoes and pepper.
An oiled grill rack keeps your food from sticking. Once your grill is good and hot, dip a folded paper towel in a little oil, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack.
