from a Couple Cooks
Serves 4 as an appetizer or side
What You Need
2 heads of romaine lettuce (or packaged romaine hearts)
Fresh ground pepper
Balsamic vinegar, if desired
What To Do
1 Preheat a grill. (If you don’t have a grill, you also can use a stovetop grill pan; in that case, skip this step.)
2 Wash and dry the romaine. If using romaine heads, remove a few of the outer-most leaves and save the greens for a salad.
3 Cut each romaine heart in half lengthwise. Drizzle each side liberally with olive oil, a good amount of kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper. If desired, drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
4 Place the romaine hearts on the grill, and grill for about 3 minutes on each side, until slightly charred.
5 Top with grated parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
