Lee and I hope you all enjoy our Grilled Lettuce recipe. Since we have lettuce growing in a planter this recipe is easy; we just pick, wash and grill. This makes a nice light dinner or a wonderful accompaniment to chicken or fish, especially when you serve Florida fresh fruit for dessert.
FLORIDA FRESH LETTUCE ON THE GRILL
2 Heads Romaine Hearts or 2 Large Radicchio Heads Halved Lengthwise
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 cup mizuna or baby mustard greens
½ cup crème fraiche
2 avocados, cut in quarters
1 fresh lemon juice
Flaky sea salt
Prepare grill on medium high heat. Brush cut sides of lettuce with a few tbsp Olive Oil, season with salt and pepper and Grill lettuce cut side down just until lightly charred, about 2 minutes.
Toss greens with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil in a medium bowl, season with kosher salt. Dollop crème fraiche on a platter, top with grilled lettuce and avocado, scatter greens over. Drizzle with lemon juice and a bit more Olive Oil, season and serve.
