Yield: 8 servings

4 Garden Hearts® Jumbo Hearts of Romaine
1/2 cup green onion, minced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup of jalapenos, chopped
black sesame seeds
12 tablespoons of dressing

3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cut one inch from the base of the Garden Heart Jumbos and separate into individual leaves. Rinse under cold, running water. Pat gently dry with paper towels.

2. Set aside two dozen of the smaller whole leaves for presentation. Cut the rest of the crisp leaves diagonally into quarter-inch strips. In a bowl, toss the lettuce strips with green onion, cilantro, jalapenos, and sesame seeds.

3. Combine dressing ingredients and toss with romaine mixture. Chill for 45 to 60 minutes. Taste and add additional seasoning, as desired.

4. Line serving platter or bowl with whole leaves and top with slaw so that points of the whole leaves extend out for presentation.

Chef's comments: "The crisp Garden Hearts® are a great alternative to cabbage and provide a flavorful base for a zesty slaw. Great with a summer BBQ of fish, shrimp, chicken or beef."
