Sometimes called crisp head lettuce, iceberg is a dense, tight head that resembles cabbage. Bred to remove the bitterness from the lettuce, it is one of the most popular lettuce varieties because of its mild taste and crunchy texture. Although it is low in nutrients compared to other nutrient-dense leafy green vegetables, iceberg lettuce is a natural refrigerant (cooling food), so it is ideal for hot summer dishes.
