Confession of a Foodie: I Like Iceberg Lettuce

The much-maligned iceberg lettuce is often dismissed as being tasteless and bland. It doesn’t have the vaulted status of romaine, the peppery tang of arugula or the sassy bite of endive. But I like it.

I like it crisp and crunchy on top of a juicy cheeseburger. I like it filling up a bowl of chopped salad topped with lots of fresh veggies and protein. I like cutting into an iceberg wedge topped with creamy Russian dressing or chunky blue cheese.

I hope you’ll like it in our recipe for BLT Pizza

“Lett-uce” know how you like your iceberg!

Lemon & Lime in the Summertime

To easily release their juices, roll lemons or limes with the palm of your hand over a hard counter surface before you slice or juice it.

Then pucker up and enjoy!
