Lettuce entertain you!

lettuce-heads

Maine summers provide the perfect environment for growing lettuces and there are tables at the farmers markets literally piled with beautiful green heads and bins full of tasty, spicy baby greens of all varieties.

A member of the aster family, lettuce has been cultivated for over 2500 years. In China, where lettuce has been growing since the 5th century, lettuce represents good luck and is served on birthdays, New Year’s Day, and other special occasions.

When it comes to making salads – with lettuce or not – the only limitation is your imagination. So be creative and throw in a variety of different lettuce types. Then add your favorite foods: fresh vegetables, cut fruits, toasted seeds and nuts, cooked whole grains or beans, whole wheat croutons, or smoked or seasoned soy products. Everything tastes great on a bed of lettuce!
