Why Do We Need To Use Iceburg Lettuce In Salads?

Chinon00 | | Jul 18, 2008 10:08 AM

I just finished a disappointing flank steak salad. The meat and cheese (feta) were very good. But the lettuce was iceburg. Why do we need to use Iceburg lettuce EVER in a salad?! I mean what exactly does it bring to a salad except for water? I get using Iceburg for maybe some textural contrast in a BLT or a tuna salad sandwich. But in a salad, NEVER.

Thanks
