Cos lettuce recipes

Cos lettuce

Cos or Romaine (Romano) lettuce is long and almost oblong in shape. The leaves are thick and firm with a stiff central rib. The outer leaves are slightly bitter, but the ones in the centre are sweeter and more delicate.

Preparation

Use them to make an authentic Caesar salad. You can also use Cos in stir-fries.
