Grilled romaine salad

Wash lettuce hearts, leaving whole, and allow to dry. Brush olive oil on outer leaves.

Place lettuce hearts on a hot grill until they are grill marked, but not wilted, about 1 ½ minutes. Rotate lettuce over and grill other side until you achieve grill marks. Remove from grill and cut off lettuce stems.

Serving Suggestion

Place 2-3 romaine leaves on a salad plate and sprinkle with salt, pepper, parmesan, and croutons as desired. Drizzle with vinaigrette and enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.
