Romaine Lettuce?

Can I grill it? How does it taste? Should I do it whole or separate the leaves?
We are BBQing a london broil for dinner and probably some yellow squash and I just thought I'd try the lettuce for a ceasar salad???
Thanks in advance

I use a mixture of iceberg and Romaine Lettuce in my Caesar's salad. but I never thought of grilling them. When sonny boy is home (he is in military school) we only have Romaine lettuce for salad. He only eats the white parts.

I made a ceaser salad with grilled romaine the other night, WOW what a difference a little charring makes,the lettuce takes on an almost nutty flavor. I can't wait to make another one and I am Monday night!

Take off the big outside leaves or buy hearts, cut in half lengthwise drizzle with olive oil and grill on a grill or a grill pan till it has marks and is slightly wilted. .

yep... you can grill it and it is wonderful!!! My favorite way to prepare romaine!

As stated earlier, cut in half lenghtwise... drizzle with evoo, coarse salt and a bit of black pepper. Lay on grill and char. I like to add a bit of Italian dressing to mine upon serving... not much tho, just a teeny bit. It tastes sooooo good!
