Grilled Hearts of Romaine

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"This is truly and ridiculously easy. The trick is to get the grill grates very hot. And the result? A lightly caramelized surface and a slightly smoky flavor. The insides stay cool and crisp. It's quite a contrast of tastes and textures."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Brush each romaine lettuce half with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil.
  3. Cook romaine hearts, cut-side down, on the preheated grill until the cut-side is slightly caramelized but the inside is still cool and crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer lettuce, cut-side up, to a platter. Sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over lettuce and drizzle balsamic vinegar, sherry vinegar, and 2 tablespoons olive oil over the top.

We have been grilling Romaine since forever. It is absolutely amazing. We have just always made it with kosher salt and olive oil, but now cannot wait to try it this way. Don't let warm lettuce ...

I thought we were grilling on charcoal tonight but instead I tried this on the George grill. It was ok. It was a mix of crunchy and soft lettuce. I highly recommend good cheese, not Kraft shaker...

Been doing this forever, too. The first time my son had some, he had THREE! Other than leaving out the sherry and adding SEA SALT (very necessary, imho!), this is exactly how we do it. It can b...

I will be making this all summer long! Had it last week at a restaurant with goat cheese so I used that instead of parm. Do try, you will not be disappointed!

Delicious!!! So easy to make and taste amazing. I followed the recipe exactly but added some croutons for crunch.

Awesome recipe! Made it twice yesterday, with a few changes; took the advise of another reviewer and made it in my oven's broiler setting. 7 inches from the heat source. Only brushed garlic in...

I'm sure my technique will get better. Grilling the Romaine makes it seem a bit less like a salad, since I'm getting a bit tired of them. I like the vinaigrette drizzled on before serving, but...

This was a great recipe. A wonderful change from salad and a great way to add some greens to the kids diet. Thanks for sharing!

LOVE this recipe! Easy, quick, and delicious. Followed the recipe just as written.

I love this recipe! I put different vinegars to up the flavors!
