What kind of lettuce do you eat with your salads?

I don't like the crunchy stalk part of iceberg lettuce. I like the leafy part and romaine lettuce.

  • I use romaine. Iceberg has no nutritional value in it, so I substitue with a variety that does.

  • I don't use lettuce for salads much anymore. Usually we do spinach, but once in a while I'll get butter lettuce (Boston lettuce).

  • i switch it up depending on the toppings. Romaine for cesar, ice berg for asian chicken and almonds with ginger dressing, spring mix with cheddar and dried figs... so hungry...

  • I don't particularly eat iceberg lettuce because the only part of it that has ANY nutrition is the darker green part. The white pieces are just water. So I eat salads made of spinach. Romaine is ok too.

  • romaine, the darker the color, the better it is for you. Iceberg has very little nutritional value.
