Makes 4 Servings


1 large sweet onion, cut into ¼-inch slices

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided

1 large head romaine lettuce, cut in half lengthwise with core intact

¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Place onions on grill and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until browned.
  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil on cut sides of romaine and place on grill. Cook each side 4 to 5 minutes, or just until lettuce begins to wilt.
