Cooked lettuces are very good. Asian cultures don't eat raw lettuces I am told and many are stirred into dishes. I add lettuce to my cooking a lot. I will stir spinach or arugula in many pasta dishes, drop kale or escarole in soups, and boil dandelions and Swiss chard then dress them like salads. I even like to grill lettuce like romaine and radicchio.

Best with Romaine imho. Iceberg is very boring cooked. But then it's not particularly exciting raw either.

As a kid I remember Nona always making us boiled escarole & dandelion greens, with a poached egg and parmesan cheese. She would give us bowls of raw greens, then go around the table and pour a little boiling water over them. After she grated the cheese she would go around and with a spoon drain the greens and pour the water into a cup. As we kids ate, she would put a couple of saccharin pill in her cup of greens water and drink it like hot tea. jeez I miss those days.

I don't actually boil it but toss it in a little butter and then mix cooked garden peas with it.

Peas a la Francaise

very nice actually

I've had the romaine in Chinese Hot Pots and found it quite good.
