Romaine Salad Boats

I always see eyes get big when I bring this platter out and often have to make another (even when its just the two of us). If you already have the “Olivaise” or other oil-free vegan creamy style dressing ready and the tangy bites made, this comes together is less than five minutes. Baby romaine or the inner lighter leaves of mature romaine head work best because they are are right size and hold their shape when picked up.

Tools Used in this Recipe

  • Container with spout (like a measuring cup)
  • fork
  • serving platter or large dinner plate
