Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the grill for 20 minutes on very low heat.
  2. Cut the lettuce in half. Brush the insides generously with olive oil. Place lettuce face down on the grill and grill with the lid open for a few minutes on each side. After flipping carefully, brush with some more olive oil. Grill until outer leaves are a bit charred.
  3. Shave the manchego cheese with a vegetable peeler or the slicing blade of a grater. Cut prosciutto into bite-sized pieces. Chop the lettuce into smaller pieces.
  4. In a deep bowl, combine lettuce with the rest of the olive oil. Drizzle with lemon juice, season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  5. Top with layered cheese shavings and prosciutto pieces. Serve warm.

No barbecue prep

If you don't have a barbecue, to grill the lettuce, you can use a cast iron griddle on the stovetop.
