What is the best lettuce for salad?

For something like this lettuce and Parmesan salad, try to use a crispy lettuce such as Romaine or red leaf lettuce (I used both to give me a little variety and good texture). You can also throw in some frisée lettuce, Belgian endive, or arugula, but be sure to start with Romaine lettuce and fill in with the rest. 

When buying your lettuce, look for crisp, bright-colored leaves, and avoid anything that looks dry or wilted. Some spotting or small holes are common, particularly if you’re buying organic lettuce that’s been grown without the use of sprays.
