Butterhead lettuce adds a mild, sweet flavor to dishes. It pairs well with most dressings and can enhance the flavor and texture of your salad.
Furthermore, it works well in egg-salad or tuna sandwiches and serves as a great tortilla replacement for wraps.
This lettuce is a good source of carotenoid antioxidants, such as beta carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
These protect your eyes from macular degeneration, a condition that can result in partial vision loss. Furthermore, butterhead contains higher amounts of iron than other lettuces.
