Grilled Romaine Lettuce

Grilled Romaine Lettuce
I know this sounds like a strange way to prepare lettuce but it's delicious! The first time I tried this was at a BBQ at my sisters house. She asked me if I wanted to taste it and I said 'no way'...but my sister and I have similar taste in food and she LOVED this, so I decided to take a little taste. Well, I ended up eating LOTS of this! The flavor reminded me of the veggies in Chinese cooking. Similar to the veggies in Lo Mien. Slightly smokey and melt in your mouth tender! I was hooked instantly and have made this many times since that first taste. But I always forget to take a photo, so I borrowed this from a food friend who made it and loved it also!
Thank you Mommyluvs2cook!
