It is a variety of lettuce that grows in a tall head of sturdy dark green leaves with firm ribs down their centres. Unlike most lettuces, it is tolerant of heat. Fresh romaine is crisp for salads and contains healthy nutrients. One of the many varieties of lettuce, Romaine is known for its crisp fresh taste. Romaine is a common salad green, and is the usual lettuce used in Caesar salad. Romaine lettuce is commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine. Romaine, like other lettuces, may also be cooked. For example, it can be braised or made into soup. The thick ribs, especially on the older outer leaves, should have a milky fluid that gives the romaine its typically bitter herb taste. As with other dark leafy greens, the antioxidants found in romaine lettuce are believed to help prevent cancer.
