3 Reasons Your Lettuce Belongs on the Grill
Here are just 3 reasons why you should run outside and get to grilling some lettuce.
1. Flavor. Grilling lettuce creates wonderfully caramelized, smoky flavor.
2. Texture. Cool, crispy insides contrast gloriously with the caramelized outside.
3. Ease. Grilling romaine is just the easiest, most delicious way to get your greens. It's an amazing contrast of tastes and textures. Top your grilled lettuce hearts with grated cheese and a simple vinegar or lemon juice and olive oil dressing.
"This is truly and ridiculously easy," says Chef John. "The trick is to get the grill grates very hot." Watch Chef John get it done:
"These grilled radicchio wedges make a colorful side to accompany most any grilled main dish," says France C. "The sweet, acidic flavor of the balsamic and creamy blue cheese tame the natural bitterness of the radicchio."
