Red Summer Crisp Lettuce


1 head

Also known as French crisp or Batavia lettuce, summer crisp lettuce is very crisp like romaine, but sweet and juicy, without bitterness. Nutty with smooth and buttery, ruffled leaves, summer crisp lettuce is considered some of the best tasting lettuce around. Chop for a refreshing salad base; add some crispity crunch to your sandwich; use whole leaves as wraps for roll-ups with ham, turkey, cheese, or other favorite cold cuts.

Wrap the whole head in a damp cloth or paper towel and place inside a reusable plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week.
