Little Gem Lettuce

Little Gem lettuce is a dense, sweet, small-headed variety of lettuce that is a cross between romaine and butter lettuce. It's renowned for its crispness and crunch.

Storage

Store Little Gem lettuce in a plastic bag, in the refrigerator. It's best eaten within a few days but will keep for longer, up to a week or more. Please note that we typically don’t wash the salad greens we pack for you unless they’re very dirty, because they store better unwashed. If you choose to wash your salad greens, invest in a salad spinner so you can be sure to get them truly dry. (A wet salad always disappoints.)

Cooking Tips

Little Gem lettuce makes an outstanding salad, especially with a heartier (perhaps creamy) dressing. Its leaves are also sturdy enough to be used as a “boat,” filled with chicken salad or an herby bean dip. Little Gem lettuce also adds crunch to any sandwich, works beautifully in a wedge salad, and can even stand up to a little heat on the grill or in a skillet.
