Butter lettuce (also called Bibb lettuce, butterhead lettuce or simply butter lettuce) is a leafy green salad with large, tender leaves. It’s name refers more to its butter-like texture than its flavor. Butter lettuce is a mild salad with a touch of floral sweetness. It’s a great accompaniment to sharp flavors such as strong cheese, citrus and meats.

The texture is softer and more buttery than other watery lettuce varieties. Butter lettuce doesn’t have the same buttery flavor as other lettuce varieties, but it does have a slight sweetness and a soft floral note.

In addition to providing potassium, buttercrunch lettuce also contains manganese, vitamin C and is higher in iron compared to other types of leafy greens. Iron is essential for the formation of red blood cells. However, it’s important to note that butter lettuce provides only non- heme iron which is hard for the body to break down. Vitamin C, on the other hand, can aid in absorption, so you may want to pair your butter lettuce with foods high in vitamin C, such as peppers or vinaigrettes with lemon juice.

Butter lettuce also contains antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your cells from harmful free radicals that can cause chronic diseases such as cancer. Vitamins A and C are both antioxidants. Butter lettuce also contains carotenoids. Carotenoids are a group of powerful antioxidants that include beta carotene and lutein, as well as zeaxanthin, which helps keep your eyes healthy and prevent macular degeneration (the most common type of sight weakness or loss).
