Charred to a crisp: Not a statement usually associated with salads, but delicious nonetheless in this Mexican-inspired romaine number from Rose's Luxury.

Ingredients

Tomatillo dressing

  • ¼ medium white onion, quartered
  • 1 small tomatillo, husk removed
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced, seeds removed
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salad and assembly

  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce, outer leaves removed, halved lengthwise
  • ¼ medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz. Cotija cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro stems

Recipe Preparation

Tomatillo dressing

  • Bring onion, tomatillo, jalapeño, garlic, and 2 cups water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until onion is very tender, 6–8 minutes; let cool. Drain, reserving cooking liquid.

  • Purée onion mixture with avocado and cilantro leaves in a blender. With motor running, gradually add oil and 2 Tbsp. cooking liquid and blend until combined. Add lime juice; season with salt and pepper.

Salad and assembly

  • Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Grill poblano, turning occasionally, until charred and blistered, 6–8 minutes. Let cool. Peel and finely chop.

  • Drizzle cut sides of romaine with oil; season with salt. Grill, cut side down, until charred, about 3 minutes. Turn and grill just until warmed through, about 30 seconds.

  • Spoon dressing onto plates and top with romaine, charred side up, avocado, onion, and poblano. Drizzle with lime juice; season lightly with salt. Scatter Cotija cheese and chopped cilantro stems over.
