My mother often stir-fried iceberg lettuce with garlic. It was sort of like eating a hot—but still crisp—salad. We thought it was a bit strange, because all our friends ate iceberg lettuce only raw in a sandwich or slathered with French dressing, and my brother suspected that Mom was just trying to use up old lettuce. As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate its fresh, clean flavor and quick preparation.
