    Default Too much romaine

    I have more romaine than I care to eat in salads. Do you have any recipes
    or tips for using romaine?

    Seasoning and lemon juice, then grill it for a side dish. I do not
    grill, this is per Michael Simon and it looks good to me.

    I'm making my daughter Romaine sandwiches for dinner. Take two leaves that
    are matching in size. Sandwich some meat and cheese in between them. You
    can add mayo, mustard, or whatever. Works for tuna or chicken salad as
    well.

    Yes. My daughter will be eating her sandwiches out of hand.

    I'm sure the horse that was grazing in my yard over the weekend might have
    liked some.

    Stirfry it. Thinly sliced beef, sliced onions, several slices of
    ginger. Sliced romaine including ribs and leaves. Little bit of soy
    sauce at the end. Quite good. -aem

    Grill it! I split the hearts lengthwise, drizzle a bit of olive oil
    in, salt it- and grill until the edges are blackened and the rest is
    wilting. [a broiler works, but charcoal is better]

    Serve with some parmesan- think of it as a green, not as a salad.

    I should have such problems. I can happily eat lettuce by itself, and
    with a tiny dip of dressing, it's even better. The inner, lighter
    colored part of romaine, I could eat all day long. Once my June-
    bearing strawberries are finished producing (mid May?), I''m moving
    them into a new bed, which will free up about 25 sq ft, and the
    southern half is destined for romaine. Last year I planted these
    little things that were about 4" tall that I bought at Lowe's, and
    they ended up 15"-20" tall within about 6 weeks. None got wasted.

    Home grown and locally grown produce rocks. If you live in a
    situation where you can't have a vegetable garden, but have the time
    and physical ability, search around for spaces in community gardens,
    or maybe find an elderly person with a sunny yard where you can
    sharecrop. If you have more money than time, locally grown is pricey,
    but can be bursting with freshness.

    Romaine is actually an exception. If you're not growing your own, the
    Cali stuff is fine. Mature lettuce seems to ship well, and holds up
    for several days in the fridge, but true baby lettuce is pretty
    perishable. I love the fact that more and more people are veggie
    gardening in urban/suburban areas.

    Not "liked," loved. What a treat for a horse. Horse manure composts
    more nicely than that from ruminants because there's more undigested
    cellulose. A raised bed filled with horse manure that has a summer to
    get worked on by earthworms--especially if you add a little sand--can
    be the finest substrate for growing tomatoes and everything else.

    YES! Here's a salad my mother used to make. Warning: it is not
    for the faint-hearted or for those who like wimpy food. This is
    extremely strong stuff!!!! Also, now we have fancy anchovies.
    This recipe is from the days when there were only the flat oblong
    cans--and, FWIW, I believe she used the flat anchovies, not the
    ones rolled around a caper.)

    Dorothy B's Romaine with Anchovy Dressing

    This dressing is VERY strong but VERY good. Iím not a great
    anchovy fan, so itís interesting that I like this salad a lot.

    8 anchovies
    3 Tbsp oil (NOT from anchovies)
    3 Tbsp wine vinegar (I think we used red)

    1 head romaine, torn and chilled
    2 Tbsp herb-flavored crumbs or a lot of homemade herb croutons

    Puree anchovies, oil, and vinegar in blender or mini processor.
    Serve over lettuce, tossing with crumbs or croutons.

    Plenty of horses around; but, they prefer carrots to romaine.

    My granny used to grab a head of romaine and sit in the porch near to a
    table, she removed the top and started dressing the heart with EVO oil, red
    wine vinegar and salt and then bite it until there was dressing, then she
    put another round of dressing and went on like that until the end of the
    romain heart.

    True. A horse would have to be starving to eat lettuce. Deer won't
    eat lettuce either, neither rabbits.

    Romain leaves are excellent rolled around thin sliced SPAM... one
    large head suffices for a 12 ounce can... works well as both textures
    are equally buttery soft.

    Also...if you have wild bunnies living in your yard, put some out there.
    They will love you for that treat

    Rabbits LOVE lettuce. I've owned a few pet ones in my life.
