grilled lettuce

during the summer, all i want for dinner are fresh, local ingredients that have been grilled and are eaten outside.

so when i was home visiting mama, we made grilled squid salad, grilled mixed veggies, and my new favorite thing: grilled lettuce.

who would have thought that this would a) work and b) be so incredibly good??

cut a romaine heart in half after removing some of the biggest, darkest leaves on the outside. brush the cut side with olive oil, and grill on both sides for just a minute or two.

you want some leaves to char and the rest to stay crispy.

after you take it off the grill, brush with more olive oil, drizzle with lots of lemon juice, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and freshly grated parmesan.

we ended up making it two nights in a row because it was that damn good.
