Hearts of Romaine - 224 grams ~ one head of romaine lettuce

Romaine lettuce is a kind of lettuce that grows in a long head, 8 to 9 inches tall of sturdy leaves with a firm rib down the center. The leaves are crisp, pale and slightly sweet with more of a flavor than the iceberg lettuce.

Romaine lettuce is actually quite rich in nutrients, as it contains high levels of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate and mangese.

Caesar salad is a famous use of Romain lettuce where it lends its characteristic texture and taste.

Serving size is approximately 1 cup raw or the size of a baseball.
