    SERVING : 4

    YIELD : 4 salads

  • Combine mayonnaise, blue cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, shallot, and garlic in a medium bowl. Mix well, then season lightly with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours to allow the flavors to develop.

  • When ready to prepare the salad, preheat an outdoor grill for medium-low heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute bacon, turning as needed, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Dice cooled bacon and set aside.

  • Lightly brush romaine on all sides with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Using a pair of tongs, place romaine, cut-sides down, on the preheated grill. Cook until slightly caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes; it should still be slightly raw and crunchy in the center. Remove to a clean platter and let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Place each romaine half on a serving plate. Drizzle with dressing and top with tomato and diced bacon.
