Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • For the balsamic dressing: In a blender, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Gorgonzola, basil, garlic, a pinch each of salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons water. Blend until the dressing is creamy and the garlic and basil are finely chopped.

  • For the grilled romaine: Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat.
