L is for lettuce, in this case Romaine.
I stopped buying iceberg lettuce when I heard it had absolutely no nutritional value, though I'm not quite sure I believe it. Tonight we had cucumbers, yellow bell peppers, and a few grape tomatoes on our salad, and there were sweet red onions on the table along with Romano cheese.
When I grow lettuce for salads, I plant red and green leaf lettuce and spinach. It goes directly from the garden into my salad, unless, of course, I make my garden under the wires where the birds like to perch... Blech! In that case I forgo the homegrown stuff and decide to find a different place to acquire my lettuce.
Pass the Cracked Pepper Ranch, please. Croutons? No thank you. Not this time. How about you?
