We supply both iceberg and round lettuce. Iceberg is a large pale lettuce, with crisp densely packed leaves in a firm bowl shape. The traditional round lettuce has soft mid-green outer leaves and a slightly crisper, paler heart.
How to Use
Lettuce is the key ingredient for salads and sandwich fillings. Use large leaves of lettuce instead of a tortilla wrap, and fill with your favourite ingredients. The lettuce provides a crisp, refreshing texture and works well with a variety of fillings. This is also a great sandwich alternative for anyone who is gluten intolerant.
How to Prepare
Place the lettuce on a clean work surface. Separate the lettuce leaves. Discard any old, wilted or bruised. Wash the leaves well in the sink or a large bowl of water. Transfer the leaves to a colander and gently shake to remove water.
