I vote lose it - I don't mind using it but WAY too much attention is paid the lettuce and not enough on the meat. IMHO! If the option really becomes an option nearly everyone will quit using garnish!! It IS pretty but if you lose 1 point because some ******* judge see's a yellow spot on a farking lettuce leaf then it IS NOT worth it!! If lettuce stays then the whole "appearance" score needs to disappear or be weighted so far down it can't destroy a score - focus only on taste and tenderness.
Dave, how do you really feel?
