As a child I remember this amazing sandwich place in Oklahoma City and they always use to shred the iceberg lettuce rather than use large pieces. It was so different and made such a big difference that almost 30 years later I still remember it.

Ingredients can change by simply varying the prepping style. Iceberg lettuce can be cut into a wedge, shredded, cut into large chunks, large strips and left in a cup form. It’s an awesome vegetable that can be used so diversely.
