There really are no rules on how to make them, as just about anything goes, and everyone will have to experiment what they like best.

The salads are generally low in calories, but high in nutrients, which means that they will fill you up without all the extra calories. Leafy green salads are also high in fiber, which latches onto the buildup within the digestive tract and eliminates it from the body. You can enjoy these salads as a snack, or even in a meal by themselves, or as a side dish.

Tue, 19 Apr 2011 09:00:51 -0500It seems that every time I look at a new salad recipe it calls for another type of lettuce that I am not familiar with. The type of lettuce you choose will make or break the salad. Texture and fiber content are usually the deciding factors when selecting the right leafy green. But paging through every single one of my cookbooks (about 20 of them), not a single one gave a good description of each type of lettuce and how to use it optimally. Thus, I compiled a list of some of the most commonly cited lettuces in recipes and decided to do some research on the subject.
