Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing on Grilled Romaine
1 large garlic clove,chopped
1 T chopped shallot
1 T balsamic, (I used Fustinis's 18 year old Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, WOW!)
1/2 C olive oil
5 sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil, chopped
1 t capers, drained
1/4 t fresh thyme leaves
1/8 - 1/4 t salt
pepper to taste
In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil. Process, slowly adding the oil.
1 - 2 hearts of Romaine
black olives, Kalamata or Gaeta, cut in half (optional)
Cut the Romaine in half. Brush the cut side with olive oil and grill quickly. Top the Romaine with the dressing and a few pitted and sliced black olives. Serve.
