My father in law grows a huge variety of greens at his summer cottage and his green salads are better than anything I ve had in a fancy restaurant. He starts with the basics - romaine lettuce green leaf lettuce and red leaf lettuce. He also uses oak leaf lettuce which is just a regular lettuce whose leaves are palmate (hand shaped) and therefore look a bit like oak leaves. These lettuces provide the bulk of the salad materials. He picks individual leaves off each plant so that each plant continues to grow through the summer. His lettuces can grow up to two feet tall (on the stalk) and he s still making salads from them.
