I love fresh Iceberg Lettuce! Show me a Chef or Cobb Salad that doesn't use Iceberg! Mmm, I'd love a good salad right now! Mesclun mix tastes like lawn clippings. I know it's fashionable to order Mesclun but it tastes terrible.

I love all lettuces but on a hot summer day there is nothing better than a really cold bowl full of really cold crispy iceburg lettuce with the dressing du jour.

I still like the peppery, bitter lettuce found in some mesclun mixes - with those I like a simple vinaigrette made with shallots and dijon mustard.

I enjoy mixed greens and romaine lettuce. But I agree nothing like iceberg lettuce. I like mine with shredded carrots, sliced radishes, green onions, and Thousand Island dressing. Keep it simple!!

When I was younger I loved that wedge with dressings, now I do not eat it at all (no nourishment in it). I always buy romaine and sometimes mesculin or raw spinich.

Some foods just enhance the rest of the meal. I like iceberg, but it also makes the rest of the meal so good. I've grown mesclun, but our summers get so warm I must grow it in the winter only. I use every type of salad greens available, but my gd always picks out the frisee. She said it tickles her throat. My very favorite is romaine - so versatile - but I'm still not into cooking or grilling it. I want mine raw - as well as spinach - raw only.

ChefBrian, from what I can remember it was may $7.95-$8.95? It was a lunch special, not on the regular menu - here's the restaurant, one of our faves!
