USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

Green Deer Tongue lettuce is fantastic for salads, for a slightly more interesting presentation, keep the leaves on the head, and slice from top to bottom, revealing the creamy-crunchy heart. Wash thoroughly. Since Green Deer Tongue is such a crunchy and full-flavored lettuce, it can stand up to strong flavors–blue cheese,  bacon, and creamy dressings complement its sweet crunchiness perfectly.
