Romaine Lettuce

May 18, 2014

So, your CSA (community supported agriculture) box comes with too much Romaine lettuce.  No worries! Here are some ideas to manage the abundance.

Grilled Hearts of Romaine

Remove the outer leaves of the head of Romaine and get down to the heart.  Keeping the stem end in tact, lie the heart down on a cutting board and cut it lengthwise right through the center.  Drizzle the lettuce with olive oil and place on a medium hot grill for a minute or two on each side.  Remove from the grill, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

Simple Ceasar Salad

Use the outer leaves for a Ceasar salad.  Slice the lettuce into strips and then crosswise into squares, or tear into bite size pieces.  I use bottled Ceasar salad dressing.  Add some grated Parmesan cheese.  Croutons are optional.

Let there be lettuce.
