About

True to its name, the long, lobed leaves of this lettuce look like large oak leaves. Not just a looker, Oakleaf lettuce has a buttery texture and a sweet, mellow flavour with just a hint of nuttiness, making it a perfect match for savoury dressings.

How to prepare

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).
