Grilled lettuce?!?!!

Have ya'll tried grilled lettuce?? Oh my!  It is so good! My brother was telling me about how he's been doing it.  So, of course I had to google it.  I feel like I'm totally late to the party.  Its SO GOOD!!!

I found Grillin Fools, awesome website!  Step by step instructions.  There's a whole section on grilling veggies and fruit.  I've got some experimenting to do. 

What I did was so easy and super yummy.  Handy Hunk even tried a bite and said it was good.  (Coming from him- is a BIG thing.  He's a massive meatatarian.)

I put minced garlic, Garlic Olive Oil (I get it from The Queen Creek Olive Mill), roasted sesame seeds, black pepper, and a pinch of sea salt.  Then I grilled it.  I think I should of left it to grill just a bit longer, but this was my first time and I was a little unsure about it.  As soon as I took it off I put some shredded Parmesan cheese on it.  Then on one half I put the dried cranberries and sliced almonds.  I poured a little bit of a sweet balsamic vinaigrette on it and Oh my!  I ended up doing the same thing to the other half.  I can't wait to do it again.

It sounds yummy - I do think lettuce is a great food to cook with. I've had it in soups (added at the last minute), but never grilled. I'm going to have to try that one !
