Little Gems with Hazelnuts and Red Wine Vinegar

Griddling lettuce might seem odd, but it makes it soft with a crisp outer surface.

Serves 6.


  • 6 little gem lettuces, halved, large outer leaves removed
  • Good drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp hazelnuts, roughly chopped and toasted in a pan with a little oil


  1. Rub the lettuces with the olive oil and wine vinegar, then season
  2. Heat a griddle pan until smiling hot, then griddle the lettuce for 3 minutes on each side or until golden
  3. Transfer to a warmed dish and season well.
  4. Drizzle over any vinaigrette from the drizzle pan, then toss with the hazelnuts
