Green Leaf lettuce is best suited for fresh applications and is most commonly used as a wrap, garnish, in salads, or as a layer in a sandwich. The leaves can be torn or sliced and used as a crunchy element in a salad, layered in burgers or sandwiches such as a French dip and croquet-monsieur, or used as a bed for meatloaf, chicken salad, stir-fries, and slow braised meats and grilled fish. Green Leaf lettuce can also be used to wrap summer rolls, tabbouleh, and mushroom burgers or used for tacos. Green Leaf lettuce pairs well with Bulgar wheat, red peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, green onions, garlic, capers, shallots, ginger, poultry, fish, herbs such as cilantro, mint, coriander, turmeric, and pineapple. The leaves will keep up to ten days when wrapped in paper towels and stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
