I recently discovered these little “Artisan” romaine lettuces.  They came in a bag of 6, and each one was about 6 inches tall.  I bought them at the Costco nearest my house, so that sort of qualifies them as “local” produce.

They weren’t quite as crisp as the larger heads of romaine lettuce we’re used to, but their cuteness made up for it.  I trimmed them, and cut each one in half lengthwise.  I sprinkled quartered grape tomatoes, diced red onion, chopped bacon, and crumbled bleu cheese over them and called them Romaine Wedgies.  I served them with ranch dressing because that’s what I had on hand.  They were an attractive addition to our steak dinner.
