Pesach Menu: Romaine Lettuce

Romaine lettuce sometimes takes the place of the bitter horseradish at a seder. While I never understood how romaine could even remotely compare to the tortuous burn of its pungent counterpart, I do admit that it’s much easier to wrap up the grated horseradish into a neat little bundle by using a lettuce leaf.

You didn’t think this was going to be five different romaine lettuce salads; where’s the gourmet in that? Sure, there’s one at the end, but the other recipes are going to challenge your preconceived notions of lettuce, even if they are deceptively easy to make.

This is one of those recipes where once you taste it you start trying to figure out where you’ve had it before. This dish is very reminiscent of bok choy from a Chinese restaurant.
