All these ideas look great! I love a ton of shredded romaine on top of tacos or taco salads. (I'm also weird and can eat romaine plain.)

Just thought of something else. You could make your own homemade sushi... Use the lettuce insted of seaweed, brown rice, and steamed shirmp or fish. You could add your spices and dip in a homemade wasabi sauce. (the lettuce is an excellent low sodium option).

You can do a oriental lettuce wrap (chicken sautéed in low sodium msg free soy sauce, roasted red peppers and brown rice with scrambled egg whites)! Make a peanut dipping sauce (natural peanut butter and apricot preserves. Mix together and put in the microwave to make a warm sauce). I love oriental foods but they are high in msg and sodium. I find making homemade versions are much healthier! Or some mexican fajita wraps (with chicken, black beans, and corn salsa) The possibilities are endless!!! You could even do breakfast burritos with eggwhites, turkey sasuage, green pepper and mushrooms all wrapped up in the lettuce!

sorry if this is a repeat but you can use it in lieu of bread or rolls. use it as the top and bottom of a sandwich.

I use the dark green tops in soups. Also you can saute it in olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper as you would spinach or escarole. emoticon

I used some in a smoothie the other day with IIRC, plums and grapes. Just use some citrus juice to counteract the bit of bitterness from the lettuce.

You might have to give some away! Is there a food pantry in your area that would accept your produce?

Use the leaves instead of wraps, fill with chili, chicken fajita etc

I have an abundance of romaine lettuce! What can I do with it before it heads south besides just salads?
