Grilled Romaine Lettuce

Restaurants are selling this dish for much more than it costs to make at home. And it’s so simple to do! Don’t be afraid that the heat will wilt the lettuce; it’s hearty enough to take it. The grill marks add to the visual appeal, so be sure to leave the lettuce on the hot grates long enough to get a little char.
