Butterhead lettuce gets its charming name from the sweet, mild flavour and tender texture of the ruffled outer leaves. Cutting into the head reveals a solid, crunchy heart – but this is still full of flavour, and needn’t go to waste. A favourite for salads, Butterhead lettuce will stand up well to most dressings.

Cooking

A good salad is all about balancing a variety of leaves with the right dressing. The basic ratio for a vinaigrette is 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. Add mustard, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.

Storage

Store in the bottom of the fridge – best eaten as fresh as possible. Whole leaves attached to the lettuce last twice as long as chopped, washed leaves. Delivered from our farm, so wash before eating.

Class

Our lettuces are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).

Country of origin

Grown in France.
