Hearts of Romaine with Creamy Feta Dressing

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cut each heart of romaine in half lengthwise. Arrange romaine on a serving platter.
  2. For dressing, in a food processor or blender combine Basic Vinaigrette, 1/2 cup cheese, the water, oregano, garlic, and salt. Cover and process or blend until smooth.
  3. Drizzle dressing over romaine; sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Top with 1/4 cup cheese. To serve, cut romaine halves crosswise into quarters.

From the Test Kitchen

Out of feta? Use goat cheese (chevre) instead. For a change of texture, use baby greens in place of the romaine. Go Middle Eastern and use a teaspoon each of ground cumin and coriander instead of the oregano.

Basic Vinaigrette

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small screw-top jar combine oil, lemon juice, and vinegar. Cover and shake well.

From the Test Kitchen

For an Asian spin, use 3 tablespoons peanut oil and 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil for the olive oil, lime juice for the lemon juice, and rice wine vinegar for the white wine vinegar. Want a French Vinaigrette? Add 1/2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard and 1 tablespoon minced shallot. Want a heartier flavor? Use red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar.
