Tips for success

Without much effort, you can turn lettuce into something so delicious. Hot and crispy with browned edges. Tender on the inside but still crunchy. With a little good olive oil, some sweetness to caramelize better and a squeeze of fresh lemon and a delicious salsa. Topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese, vegan or not. Absolutely perfect with juicy grilled food or sometimes for breakfast, which is how we like to eat it.

  • Most importantly, cut the head of lettuce in half lengthways. You can also quarter particularly large specimens. Make sure the leaves stay connected at the core.
  • On the grill: Make sure your grates are clean and brushed with a little oil. The temperature of the grill should be around medium-high. This gives the lettuce that nice browning and gives it a kind of smoky flavor.
  • In the grill pan use some olive oil and also cook over medium heat.
  • Don’t forget the fresh lemon juice in the salsa. This is the key to being able to discover the natural flavors of the lettuce.
