Heart of lettuce

June 15, 2015  •  Category:

When we were kids, we used to always fight over who was going to get the heart of the lettuce. The lettuce was always a romaine (which I believe is native to the region). Most times than not, mom would end-up with it. All of this to say that it was the most prized portion. Dipped in salt, it makes a great appetizer.
