Is there any way to grill the lettuce in advance?

I would like to take this to a potluck.

Agree with Nancy. The grilled lettuce will not hold well if they sit for hours.

Since the lettuce only grills for at most 2 minutes, it might be a better plan to prep them to be grill-ready and the dressing in advance. Then grill them right before you eat.

Lettuce hot off the grill can be great; grilled lettuce sitting several hours less great.
If you mostly want to take a grilled salad to the pot luck, use a recipe featuring other vegetables, like corn and sweet peppers.
If you mostly want to take a Caesar salad, use a classic (ungrilled) recipe.

Other vegetables - that is, sturdier ones which will hold their shape better after the grilling.
