Spinach lettuces are bright green leaves attached to a light green stem. The leaves can be eaten young with mild flavour or mature with a slightly bolder taste. The baby spinach lettuce has a pepper like flavour with hints of mustard and nuts and its very popular due to its particular clean taste.
Spinach lettuce is often used as a herb in the kitchen, but it can also be used as a leaf vegetable. As a vegetable, it can be cooked, although it will tone down the flavour. Add this lettuce to pesto for best results!
