    We don’t use iceberg lettuce because it has no nutritional value. And Romaine, Boston, Bibb tastes so much better. Thanks for all your advice. The ones you put about coconut oil is the best! I am the kitchen manager for a large church in the South and they are being treated to very good, up-market food thanks to many of your recipes. Pam Rawlinson
