How do we use this product?
Romaine lettuce is most frequently used in Caesar salads and other salads. It has a slightly sweeter, bolder flavor than crisphead, which adds a mild burst to salads and sandwiches. Although romaine works well for soups and stir-fries, you should add it near the end of cooking to prevent it from getting too soggy.
Conventionally grown, not organic. We recommend ozonating.
