Oak Leaf Lettuce

Oak leaf lettuce is a leaf vegetable that belongs to the composite flower family. It is also known as oak leaf salad and American pluck lettuce.

As with all types of pluck salad it’s referred to as cultivated lettuce. This salad is grown mainly in France, Italy and the Benelux countries.  Oak leaf lettuce has a bit of a hazelnut flavour. It is fresh for only a short time and should not be kept in the refrigerator for more than a day.

Season: May to October
