More About Green Leaf Lettuce:

Green leaf lettuce is a sweet and very delicately textured and flavored lettuce.  To add “interest” to our mixed green salads, we like to combine green 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).  See the nutritional chart below.
