The red oakleaf lettuce is a tasty leafy vegetable named after its similarity to the leaves of an oak tree. A popular and attractive choice for salads and wraps thanks to its crunchy texture, red Oakleaf lettuce is a great source of antioxidants that support your immune system.
To clean the oaktree lettuce, remove the outer leaves and cut off the top tips since they are generally bitter. Cut off the bottom portion and chop the remaining lettuce to your desired size. Rinse the lettuce well to ensure no dirt is hiding inside!
