2 Romaine heads of lettuce,
In roasting the shallots and onions, cut them in half and put them face down in the roasting pan with plenty of olive oil. Roast the shallots so they caramelize and get a little color.
Heat the BBQ to medium high heat.
Either brush the Romaine lettuce or spray it with olive oil.
Cook just enough to lightly wilt the lettuce and put a little char on it.
Brush the top of the Romaine lettuce halves and flip them over.
Remove to a platter.
Grill the pears either cut in quarters or in half like the one in the fore-front, and then cut later for serving. Brush or spray the pears with olive oil and grill till lightly brown marks are on the pears. dust with the vanilla or cinnamon sugar.
Serve a half romaine on a plate and top with dressing , divide the bacon crumbles and parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top. Serve 2 pear quarters each.
Alton Brown likes to top this charred Caesar salad with frozen shaved vinegar.
Just pour 1/2 cup of vinegar like sherry, champagne,balsamic or whatever in a pan and freeze for a few hours at least.
