About mixed lettuce products

When you're looking for lettuce at the store, often you'll find a bag of mixed greens or mixed lettuce. This mixture can include a combination of several different types of greens depending on the brand. You'll find four main types of lettuce available: Butterhead, Crisphead, loose-leaf, and romaine. Other greens that may make up a mixed lettuce product include spinach, frisee, arugula, radicchio, and Swiss chard.

Butterhead lettuce has soft, buttery leaves that make up a small, round head that's loosely formed. When you examine this lettuce type, you'll find inside leaves are a pale yellow-green while the outer leaves are a pale green. Butterhead lettuce offers a sweet, succulent taste. In comparison, Crisphead lettuce has a cabbage-shaped head and a crisp texture to the leaves. The leaves are pale green with a mild flavor.

Loose-leaf lettuce does not form heads and consists of large, loosely packed leaves. Leaves of loose-leaf lettuce can be either red or green and have smooth or ruffled edges. You'll find that this type of lettuce is slightly crisper than Butterhead but not as crisp as romaine, with a mild flavor. Romaine lettuce grows in an elongated head with deep green leaves. Its leaves have a slightly bitter taste and a crisp texture.

FAQs About Mixed Lettuce

While cabbage and certain types of lettuce may look alike, they are different vegetables. Both cabbage and lettuce are low in calories, but cabbage offers more fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6, and folate than lettuce. Cabbage also contains more iron, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and potassium than lettuce. Cabbage has a peppery flavor and crunchy texture and cooks up well, whereas lettuce has a blander flavor and is typically not used in cooking. Lettuce is used in salads and added to sandwiches. You can use raw cabbage to make coleslaw.

You'll find 16 different types of greens and lettuce in a bag of spring mix. These greens and lettuce include green romaine, mizuna, baby spinach, red romaine, Lolla Rossa, red chard, red leaf, arugula, red oak leaf, green mustard, red mustard, tatsoi, radicchio, mizuna, and frisee. Half of these specialty greens offer a sweet, mild flavor complemented by the other half's slightly bitter edge, creating a perfect blend of greens for a tasty salad.

Restaurants make delicious salads, but why do they always seem to taste better than a salad you make at home?

Restaurants often salt the greens, sometimes adding pepper to season the greens. Ingredients that add variety and complexity are easier for a restaurant because they can access more accompaniments. More than likely, chefs tossed in a large bowl with the dressing added first, then the greens next. The salad gets flipped around in the dressing to coat the leaves thoroughly. Speaking of dressing, restaurants don't worry about the fat content in their salad dressings.
