Grilling for Fourth of July? Add grilled romaine to your BBQ menu; it's a quick and easy recipe that takes only a few minutes to prepare and can be jazzed up with a variety of flavors.

Kids and adults love to enjoy this recipe because it's fun to eat and doesn't look like your ordinary soggy green salad. It's a winner for a weeknight family side dish or your annual Fourth of July cookout, so toss a few heads of fresh romaine onto your grill and get your party started!

Garlic Grilled Romaine

Serves 4
Ingredients
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 hearts of romaine lettuce, cut in half lengthwise
Directions

Heat a grill to medium heat.

In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper; whisk to combine, then drizzle on top of romaine hearts on a large plate.

Spray the grill with nonstick cooking spray and lay lettuce down on the hot grill using tongs. Cook for 3 minutes when you see grill marks appear, then flip the romaine using a spatula.

Remove from the grill; serve warm or at room temperature.
