Above all else, remember the rules for grilling: Rule #1, pour yourself a cocktail!

Grilled Romaine SaladYields: 4 salads
Prep Time: pretty much nothing!
Cook Time: 3-5 minutes
2 Romaine heads, cut in half lengthwise
Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper
Prepare a grill to medium heat (or if cooking something else on higher heat, use the outer edges of the grill to cook the romaine hearts). Slice the romaine hearts in half, lengthwise and spray with olive oil spray (lightly). Grill the romaine halves on medium heat or on the outer edge of the grill for 2-3 minutes per side. The goal is to get a slight grill mark on the lettuce, but still keep it's crispness.
Remove from the grill and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.
