Who says meat has to get all the attention on the grill? Halved hearts of Romaine get a major flavor boost and gorgeous char from a quick turn on the grill. An elegant tarragon-infused vinaigrette makes this dish dinner party worthy, yet still easy enough for weeknights. Feel free to swap out the blue cheese for feta or shaved Parmesan.
