Grilled Romaine Lettuce

Grilled Romaine Lettuce 
         We love using our BBQ and like to grill as much as possible always seems to taste so much better, and why cook inside when we can do it all outside? We grill lotsa veggie's and Romaine is a veggie so why not grill it?
         I found this recipe on the internet on Simply Recipes click here for the link. Modified for the ingredients to what I have on hand.
very tasty, will do it again

Hearts of romaine lettuce, painted with a herb vinaigrette, and grilled. Served whole, or chopped for a grilled salad.
What are romaine hearts? Just the inner leaves of romaine lettuce that stay somewhat tightly together, not the outer leaves.

Prep time: 10 minutes Yield: Serves 3-4.
Cook time: 10 minutes

1 romaine heart
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 Tbsp  cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs ( I used Clubhouse garlic and herb- salt free)
dash of sea salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

1 Prep the romaine hearts—pull off any old leaves. Chop off the top 1 or 2 inches of the lettuce head, and shave off the browned part of the root end, leaving the root end intact so that the lettuce head stays together.
2 Prepare your grill for high, direct heat. Paint the lettuce hearts all over with the vinaigrette. Prepare the vinaigrette. Put the oil, vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk with a fork to combine.
3 Grill the romaine hearts until lightly browned on all sides, turning every minute or two until done.
Serve immediately. You can either serve the hearts whole, or chop them and toss them for a salad.
