One night some friends came over for dinner and gifted us with a huge bag of Icelandic lettuce leaves. A strange token to come with, you might say, and you’re correct if you think this doesn’t happen often. Wine and chocolates are still more common!
You can imagine that it is expensive to buy fresh vegetables up here, since nearly everything is imported in. We usually go for red and white cabbage since one head will last a looooong time. It’s so dense! Still, I love the crisp texture of lettuce, and to me it makes for a real salad.
The ostentatious size of the bag made me feel like I’d won lottery – here’s a picture to capture the moment!
