Grilled Romaine Salad With Avocado-Lime Dressing Recipe

You grill sausages, corn on the cob, and even pizza—so why not lettuce? If romaine hearts aren't yet a part of your barbecue repertoire, they should be. The outer leaves soften and char as they grill, while the core remains crunchy. Drizzle them with an avocado-lime dressing and serve warm for a show-stopping summer salad.
