Too much lettuce

April 11th, 2007 at 06:47 am

'Del Monte' west producing too much:

-romaine lettuce
-spinach

and not enough:

-grapes
-flowers

OK, can't complain about the flowers. I've had a gorgeous purple/white/yellow bouquet of iris and calla lily for 1.5 weeks. Do you EVER buy flowers? Coral, pink and yellow roses on the way.

This is our backyard garden. How much salad can you eat bleh, time to give away some romaine...

    If you make a wilted lettuce salad, it uses a lot more lettuce than a cold salad. Heat vinegar, oil, a touch of sugar in a large fryin pan. Can add onion, ginger, dry mustard, black pepper, whatever spice you might like. Or just use a store bought Italian dressing. Drop your large volume of lettuce into the vinegar-oil with heat on high. Stir until lettuce wilts. If you eat bacon, it is good with crunchy bacon bits added after wilting. Serve hot.

    If you are unaccustomed to this kind of salad, you might be turned off by the appearance or the odd "chew" the lettuce will have. I grew up where this is done especially with wild spring greens, so it seems normal to me. Friends from outside the USA make similar dishes with greens other than lettuce.
