Is lettuce a spice?
In this way, what type of lettuce is spicy?
Mizuna is an Asian variety of mustard greens. It has spiky dark green leaves that have a surprisingly delicate texture and delightfully peppery, even spicy kick.
One may also ask, is Arugula a type of lettuce? In addition to the four types of lettuce there are many other greens that fill our salad bowls. These are a few of the more common ones. Arugula is also called rocket or rucola. Arugula is a member of the mustard family but it is not as bitter as mustard greens.
Regarding this, what can I use instead of lettuce for salad?
Mix a few different lettuces and greens with veggies, sprouts and other toppings like nuts, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and goldenberries.
