Lettuce, Red Leaf

Lettuce, Red Leaf
(Lettuce, Red Leaf) Red leaf lettuce is a sweet and very delicately textured and flavored lettuce.  To add "interest" to our mixed green salads, we like to combine red leaf lettuce together with some of the firmer and stronger tasting greens, such as romaine, chicory and escarole.  Select heads of leaf lettuce that are bright green and with "firm" leaves (leaves that don't flop over when the head is held upright).  Also, with red leaf lettuce, be careful that the ends of the red leaves have not turned brown.  See the nutritional chart with green leaf lettuce, which should be similar except for the phytochemicals that produce the red color.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
