Lettuce Grill!

Lettuce Grill!


Bet you didn’t know you could cook your romaine. I swear this will forever change how you look at your lettuce. In just 4 mins you have an extremely sophisticated salad with the perfect taste of char, warmth, and health! You can top it with anything you’d like- I see a grilled bacon and blue cheese salad in my near future- but I chose to stick with other box ingredients and went fruity. 0 regrets. To complete the first dinner of the new year- It was Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year- I wanted to use apples somehow. It’s a tradition to welcome in the sweet new year with apples and honey. So queue apples and maple syrup. The pork probably wasn’t so kosher, but man oh man that flavor profile with the sweet apples and pork was a winner. These apples would be great with chicken, salmon, or even on their own as a dessert. Enjoy and happy new year to everyone!
