Romaine (Romano) or Cos lettuce is long and almost oblong in shape. The leaves are thick and firm with a stiff central rib. The outer leaves are slightly bitter, but the ones in the centre are sweeter and more delicate. This lettuce is also packed with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fibre, which you can read more about here

Intrigued by the combination of tastes and textures. I can understand salmon and feta; but avocado?
