I like the idea that you were able to use lettuce in other food. To be honest, we share the same thoughts! I always thought that lettuce only tasted good when it is used for salad. I am not a big fan of salads because I grew up eating meat every single day. I tried to be a vegetarian once, but when I ate lettuce, I started to choke up because it felt like the lettuce was getting stuck in my throat.
