"Brushed with an Asian-inspired marinade made with sesame oil and fresh ginger, these grilled halved heads of romaine lettuce are the perfect start to any barbecue."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 tablespoons
apple cider vinegar
brown sugar (packed)
grated fresh ginger
3 small heads
romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise
I made this dish as a side to pasta for my DH and I and we thought it was a good unique side dish, but that there was WAY too much soy sauce and not enough ginger. I added some roasted garlic and almost double the amount of ginger; I also added a squeeze of honey (in addition to the brown sugar) for a bit of added sweetness and it was pretty good. I will probably try this again, but will modify the recipe to suit our taste.
My first impression when I read this recipe was - "Interesting, but warm lettuce?" Well - I like to experiment so I tried it. Not awful, but it is still warm lettuce. Imagine the pieces of lettuce that fall off your fast food hamburger. Thanks what the texture is like.
What a change of pace! I made these exactly as stated but I added some black pepper and garlic. I made this for the first BBQ of the season and everyone was really suprised at how good they were! I used romaine hearts that come in a 3 pack. One of my friends said this would be really good as a bed for an asian stir fry.
