Bistro blend is a mixture of open lettuce with colourful leaves that have a sweet flavour. High in vitamin A, B1 and C so harvest, rinse and use straight away. Coarse chop and mix with desired food partners then add dressing just prior to serving.
Plant in rich organic soil that is moist but well drained. Prefers a full sun position with plenty of air movement. Can be grown in pots.
It is most often grown as a leaf vegetable. In many countries, it is typically eaten cold and raw, in salads, hamburgers, tacos, and many other dishes. In some places, including China, lettuce is typically eaten cooked and use of the stem is as important as use of the leaf. By varying the greens in your salads, you can enhance the nutritional content as well as vary the tastes and textures.
