Lettuce Soup

Total time: 25 minutes
     Why not?  We make soup of cabbage, spinach and other greens.  Lettuce Soup is be a bit more delicate, depending on what types of lettuce used.  I would suggest using dark green varieties and not adding any purple - it could be a strange color.  It can be made ahead and served cold, straight from the fridge.  I used the outer leaves of heads intended for the salad.
