About: Fresh black rose lettuce is suitable for raw applications because of its vibrant color, curly texture, and mild flavor. Because the curly leaves enhance the surface area and have the ability to capture and hold salad dressing, they are most commonly used in salads with other greens. The leaves can also be used as a garnish, piled in sandwiches, split and strewn over soups, or as a bed for cooked meat.
Health benefits: Vitamins A and C, folate, and iron are all present in black lettuce. It also possesses 100 times the antioxidants as regular lettuce. Furthermore, the quercetin found in its leaves acts as a natural antihistamine, reducing allergy and asthma symptoms.
