Baby Butterhead Lettuce - Gross: 180g | Net: 100g
Butterhead lettuces have soft, buttery-textured leaves that form very loose "heads". In the garden, the small heads are loosely folded and range in color from pale green to purple red. The unique textures and colors of our Butterhead Lettuce varieties are highly prized by gourmet cooks.
Butterhead Lettuce boasts a mild, sweet and succulent flavor.
Butterhead Lettuce provides calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium and is a good source of vitamins A and K.
How to Use
Butterhead Lettuce's best virtues are displayed when it is used as the principle salad ingredient as its textures and its subtle flavors are a perfect canvas for savory and bold companion ingredients and bright, fruity flavors. Pair with citrus, tomatoes, radishes, chilies, cooked eggs, especially fried and soft boiled, cheeses, particularly fresh or aged goat and sheep's milk, champagne and balsamic vinegar and cream-based dressings such as yogurt or buttermilk, dried fruits, apples, pears, melon, roasted chicken, bacon, shellfish, smoked trout, herbs such as basil, cilantro and dill.
How to Store
It will keep 3-4 days when stored in a loosely closed container and stored in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
As butter lettuces are frequently quite small, you may decide to use the entire head for a meal-sized salad. Alternatively, you can mix the lettuce in with other types of vegetables or leafy greens.
