Grilled Romaine with Herbed Ranch Dressing

All summer long I've been hearing about grilled romaine.  It sounded like an interesting idea, but I really couldn't imagine it - the taste, how it would hold up on the grill, why I would bother.  This week I decided to give it a shot and I can confirm the following:
1. It was tasty
2. It was easy
3. It might be my new favorite thing

I made up a recipe using ingredients I had on hand and it was really delicious.  If making dressing seems like too much work for you, just use whatever bottled dressing you like and it will save you a few steps.  I've made this particular dressing twice - once as the non-dairy version listed here, and once with dairy ingredients - with good results both times.

The actually grilling part was very easy.  The lettuce held together just fine, and took only a few short minutes on each side.  I placed it over direct heat after I moved the meat to the cooler side of the grill to finish.  All of the food was done at the same time, and while I chopped up the lettuce the meat had a few moments to rest. 

I'd highly recommend giving it a try - I know I'll definitely make it again.
