Lettuce Iceberg

Lettuce Iceberg

There once was a time–before the arrival of mesclun, frisee, endive, spring mix, packaged salads, radicchio and arugula–when iceberg lettuce dominated the produce aisle. A head lettuce, as opposed to a leaf lettuce–is also known as “crisphead” lettuce since one of its chief virtues is that it stays fresher longer than leaf lettuces.
