Los Angeles, Ca, – Iceberg lettuce is fiber-filled with little to no vitamins, but even still it’s a great inexpensive filler for salads, tacos, sandwiches, lettuce cups and more. Iceberg is very dense and can be cut into various different shapes to fit into many different recipes.
As a child, I remember this amazing sandwich place in Oklahoma City and they always use to shred the iceberg lettuce rather than use large pieces. It was so different and made such a big difference that almost 30 years later I still remember it.
Ingredients can change by simply varying the prepping style. Iceberg lettuce can be cut into a wedge, shredded, cut into large chunks, large strips and left in a cup form. It’s an awesome vegetable that can be used so diversely.
In this quick Food Hack video Mary shows you how to cut it four different ways.
