Quiz: Do you know your lettuce varieties?

Okay, all  you salad lovers out there! So you know your Butter from your Romaine, but can you correctly identify 21 different varieties of lettuce and cabbage!? I thought you’d have fun with this quiz – big thanks to husband Scott for all the programming, Dole Salads for all of the text descriptions of the lettuce and cabbage varieties and my kids who dutifully ate salad at every single meal for 4 days after the photoshoot.

    That was really fun! I got the ones I’ve eaten correct – does that count for something? ;) This really makes me want to try new varieties of lettuce!

    I bombed big time…probably should remove Lettuce Master off my resume!
