Iceberg is the most under-rated lettuce in the world.
I think it’s the best: it has texture, crunch, juice and holds up to almost anything you put with it. We always use iceberg at home and often whip this salad up as a crowd-pleaser on the side.
Peel any outer leaves off the lettuce, discarding those that have cracked and discoloured. Use a small knife to cut out the core of the lettuce. This will allow the leaves to peel away easily.
Place the lettuce with the core down in a bowl of iced water and chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes. The lettuce will soak up the iced water and become really crispy and juicy.
