It is known as a "chiffonade".
Wash the lettuce and remove any ribs. Allow to dry or use a salad spinner.
Cut the leaves into 5-7 cms/2-3 inches strips in width and cut finely with a knife. A good sharp knife will make an excellent chiffonade for use in Seafood Cocktail a la Gordon Ramsey or Marco Pierre White!!!!!
