Not yet. There's a couple Ellie Kreiger recipes I read that have grilled lettuce.

I've heard of someone doing this. Slather it with some sort of sauce, straight on the grill for just a few seconds....Hmmmm.....Gotta look into this....

Hey, thanks for the reminder!!
I've seen it, always meant to.... and forgot about it.

I have an extra head of romaine in the fridge I was afraid would be compost before I got to it.... now I know!!!

I don't know. But I would be that Caesar Salad Dressing would be pretty stellar....I may have to try that this weekend. Just doing brats on the grill, but I may do this just to try it and if it's any good, put it on the site.

I think what I saw they sliced it in half lengthwise making one head into two long half heads....

Looks great to me! I'd like blue cheese dressing on it. Or, maybe Caesar dressing and some parm cheese sprinked over it.

I think I'll grill some this weekend if we have steaks!

Rachael Ray had a recipe for that once - we've made it several times. Just cut the romaine in half lengthwise, brush lightly with olive oil, and grill just long enough to get some char. She topped it with sliced tuna grilled rare and bleu cheese dressing - DH likes it that way, but I prefer it with Italian dressing, so I guess your favorite dressing would work fine

I've done it lots of times, but I only brushed the romaine with olive oil before grilling and then dressed it afterward. I love it!

I can see that. Not sure what the reaction the caesars dressing would have to the heat. So char it, and then slather with some dressing...Hmmmm

It was really good! Made it last night.
Sorry, didn't get a pic.
I didnt dress it at all, just did what I do with zucchini.... drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper..... grilled.... then I just grated some parmesan over it.
Pretty tasty!

I did some last night along with marinated chicken breasts and sauteed haricots. I like the taste, reminds me of a cooked greens like collards. I just drizzled with OO, seasoned with salt/pepper and finished with parmesan.
