    Have you ever grilled lettuce? If not, you should.

    Unknown to most, lettuce has a very dense interior, making it perfect for grilling at a summer bar-b-que with your neighbors and friends.

    To do so, cut the lettuce-wedge in half, put a small amount of olive oil on the inside so it burns, sprinkle a little salt and place it on the grill.

    Close the grill and let the lettuce sit there for about two to three minutes at medium temperature. When the lettuce looks toasty enough, put it on a plate and add as much Caesar dressing you can take.
