About: We grow a variety of Green lettuces at our farm - Green Oak, Batavia, Lollo Bionda, Lollo Rosso Green, Butterhead etc. In the summers we offer one of them - what it is is a surprise!
Health Benefits: Lettuce is rich in Vitamins A, C, and K, folates and minerals such as calcium and iron. It improves eyesight and immunity, and helps against cholesterol. Due to its high levels of water content it is also good for weight loss.
How to Use: Lettuce is used raw in salads and it goes very well alongside avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, and other lettuces. It can also be used in wraps and sandwiches, or used as a bed for cooked meats, stir-fries, and grilled fish.
FUN FACT! Lettuce was a symbol of fertility in Ancient Egypt.
