Roasted Romaine Salad

May 30, 2014

0 Comments


Salads definitely came into their own within the past year or so, going from a bunch of wilted lettuce with a blob of dressing to composed and thoughtful dishes. But composed and thoughtful doesn't necessarily mean complex. This roasted romaine is a step above that tired old salad but takes little time to prepare and has few ingredients. It's simple while still big on flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of romaine lettuce
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

​Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Using a sharp knife, split the romaine lettuce down the middle. Lay it on the baking sheet. Take one tablespoon of olive oil and drizzle it over top of the two halves of romaine.
  3. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes until the romaine has wilted a bit and is starting to brown.
  4. Before serving, prepare your dressing. Combine remaining two tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and mix well to combine. Drizzle over top of the two halves of romaine.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”

“Come Fly With Me”

August 05, 2020

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.

Favorite Spots, Five Boroughs

July 29, 2020

In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
