Little Gems are my new favorite lettuce

Little Gem lettuce is a crispy, sweet miniature lettuce that is a cross between romaine and butter lettuce. Little Gem lettuce has a great crunchy texture and tight heads with lots of nooks and crannies that capture dressing without making the lettuce soggy. Until recently, it was hard to find Little Gems outside restaurants. Now they are showing up in farmer's markets and regular grocery stores. Read my post to learn more about this wonderful lettuce.

Grill your Little Gems

Although delicious fresh, sturdy Little Gem lettuce is perfect for grilling. Slice the heads in half, brush with olive oil or a little salad dressing and throw them on the grill.
