So how do you prepare iceberg lettuce cups?
To make perfect iceberg lettuce cups, whack your head of lettuce on the counter stem-side down. Next, turn it over and twist out the core with your fingers, taking care not to damage the leaves. Run water into the lettuce head to rinse, then turn the head upside down in a mesh sieve and let it drain. Gently peel the lettuce leaves off to make your cups, taking care not to rip them.
