Grilled Lettuce

Hey guys!

I just wanted to get a quick post in, and thought tonight’s dinner was worth a mention. Inspired by this pin from a few days ago, I decided to grab a few heads of romaine lettuce from the fridge and grill ’em up. I was surprised at how tasty they were!

After washing, drying, and cutting each head in half lengthwise, coat each half with olive oil, salt and pepper . . .

Grill each side for around 3 minutes . . .
 


Top with freshly grated pecorino romano or parmesan, a squeeze of fresh lemon, a sprinkling of smoked salt, and serve immediately.



I was expecting the lettuce to get bitter, it was really sweet! It was so quick and easy and will be amazing this summer as an alternative to salad. I can’t wait to host an alfresco get-together and serve this as a side!



What are you looking forward to grilling this summer?
