|A beautiful day to lounge in the backyard |
while cooking and sipping wine.
I don't know what possessed me. Perhaps it was the bubbly wine getting to my head, but with the grill fired up and ready to go I had a notion to try cooking a head of iceberg lettuce. Iceberg is a rarity in my house to begin with. I have long ago given it up for more interestingly flavored varieties of greens. But for a burst of watery crunch, with a resilient body that holds up to dressings, iceberg can't be beat.
I also happened to have a wedge of Napa cabbage bumming around my fridge so I decided to grill that too. What the heck.
To round out this spontaneous mish-mash of ingredients I rummaged around for a few mangoes to get the singe treatment as well.
iceberg, you can hold your own!
