Get fired up for a really hot salad: romaine lettuce quarters threaded onto skewers and barbecued over medium-hot coals. The chili vinaigrette adds a different kind of heat. If using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them for 30 minutes in advance.

2 fluid ounces red wine vinegar
2 fluid ounces olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
For the Salad:
1 head romaine lettuce (about 1 lb)
2 ounces Gorgonzola, blue, or feta cheese, crumbled  
1 ounce broken pecans or walnuts, toasted
Barbecued Romaine Salad with Chili Vinaigrette Recipe at
In a screw-top jar combine vinegar, oil, garlic, salt, chili powder, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Set aside.

Cut the romaine lengthwise into quarters. To keep leaves together, spear the wedges across with 3 metal or bamboo skewers. Cook on an uncovered barbecue directly over medium-hot coals, turning once, for 3-5 minutes, or till lettuce is wilted and lightly charred.

Remove from barbecue. Remove skewers; trim off bottom core of each lettuce wedge. Cut each wedge across into slices. Place lettuce in a large salad bowl; add cheese and nuts. Shake dressing; pour over salad. Toss salad; serve immediately.
