Lettuce, Red Leaf

Red leaf lettuce is a sweet and very delicately textured and flavored lettuce.  To add “interest” to our mixed green salads, we like to combine red leaf lettuce together with some of the firmer and stronger tasting greens, such as romaine, chicory and escarole.  Select heads of leaf lettuce that are bright green and with “firm” leaves (leaves that don’t flop over when the head is held upright).  Also, with red leaf lettuce, be careful that the ends of the red leaves have not turned brown.  See the nutritional chart with green leaf lettuce, which should be similar except for the phytochemicals that produce the red color.
