This is a fancy lettuce with tight curly leaves, otherwise known as coral lettuce. The leaves are produced loosely in a whole head, are tender in taste, with a slight bitterness. These very decorative lettuce types add a punch of colour, texture and volume to salads. The curled leaves also have a practical function as they increase the surface area enabling salad dressings to be caught up in the leaf and not to the bottom of your salad bowl. Use whole leaves in rolls and sandwiches or tear the leaves into bite size pieces and use as required. The leaves can also be used as a garnish, layered in sandwiches, torn and sprinkled over soups, or served as a bed for cooked meat. Can be mixed with other lettuce types to vary taste and texture. Combines well with chopped mixed fruits and vintage cheeses. Lollo Lettuce contains vitamins A and C, folate, fiber, antioxidants, and iron.
