Grilled romaine and asparagus salad

Preparation time: 7 minutes
Cooking time: 6 minutes

1 six-ounce head romaine lettuce
Nonstick cooking spray
Aluminum foil
4 medium spears or 8 thin spears fresh asparagus
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
12 grape tomatoes
1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing

Heat grill. Cut lettuce head lengthwise in half, but do not trim off the base holding the leaves together; wash lettuce and pat dry. Spray a 12-inch piece of foil (or a larger piece, if needed) with nonstick cooking spray. Place lettuce halves on foil and place on hot grill. Grill each side of halves for 2 minutes until slightly browned. Remove from grill and cool. Cut off base, then slice lettuce horizontally into ribbons, about 1 inch wide. While grill is still hot, grill asparagus on same foil, turning constantly, until slightly browned. Slice asparagus diagonally into 1-inch pieces. Place lettuce and asparagus in a medium salad bowl along with sliced onion, tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese. Toss, add dressing, then toss again.
