What kinds of lettuce do you buy /ck/? Right now romaine makes me pretty wet but I like it all, even iceberg. Romaine just has that nice bitter lettuce flavor but it isn't overpowering. And the crunchy hearts are the best part. And you? Also I'm interested in mixing different varieties of lettuce, sometimes I do a 50/50 blend of romaine and iceberg for dinner salads but would like some other suggestions.
Butter lettuce for sandwiches, romaine for salads.
My staples are romaine, red leaf, and iceberg, but I love buying curly green leaf, gem, and butter lettuce sometimes too. Other greens I buy regularly are spinach and escarole. I fucking love escarole.
OP, you said you liked the bitter taste of romaine, you should get some escarole and add some to your salad mix. It's so pleasantly bitter.
Depends on the season and what they get in stock at the store really.
Last week they had green and red leaf lettuce on sale for $1 or $1.50 I think. But it's usually around $2 or so. Romaine is usually around the same price too. Kale is usually about $1/bunch but sometimes goes up to $2-2.50, same with other greens like mustard, collards, chard, etc.
No idea what iceberg costs, I never buy it.
i shop at the pretentious top-tier local grocery chain in seattle
2.50 per bundle for kale and chard, which arent huge but arent small
loose leaf spinach is 8 a pound, but its some local grower or something, you can get the earthbound shit for about the price fred meyers sells it
this is memeganic
i dont buy lettuce there so idk that specifically
Mostly Endive and Romaine, occasionally Radicchio. I love the light bitter, light sweet taste of Endive, I find it goes nicely with pretty much everything. Can be used cooked too, cod or other white fish sauteed with halved Endives, a splash of white wine and cream is a favorite dish of mine, quick, easy and so good.
Varies quite a bit. Usually have a bit of green leaf lettuce around for basic sandwiches and shit, but on top of that I'll usually have a mix of a bunch of other stuff I either buy or grow. Radicchio, escarole, baby gem, oak leaf lettuce, upland cress, arugula, mizuna, tatsoi, mache, baby chard, baby spinach, french sorrel, purslane, miner's lettuce, mustard greens, beet greens... lots of stuff. Mache, miner's lettuce, and french sorrel are probably my favorites right now.
I like most types of lettuce, but boston/bibb/butter is all overrated as fuck.
I usually stick with romaine. I like to do a grilled caesar, or even put it on a pizza.
