Butterhead lettuce receives its name from its sweet buttery flavour and the delicate texture of its leaves. Originating from the Medetaranian, butter lettuce's tender and loose bright green leaves and mild flavour allow for countless culinary pairings. Add to salads and sandwiches or use whole leaves for wraps to hold your favourite fillings. Everyone seems to love when we bring butter lettuce wraps to a summer picnic with an assortment of fillings (salsas, grated veg, beans and/or ground meat...)
