I will be interested to try this one as everyone always turns their nose up at lettuce soup UNTIL they try it lol

Do you use any lettuce or a particular one? I know with the soup that it works best with butter crunch I think it is.

I'm sorry, where I live we only have one lettuce, the one with quite large but not long leaves and yes, the taste is very very nice and sometime I serve it with croutons rubbed with garlic and some olive oil because in Tuscany we don't use butter so much because of the large production of excellent oil but I'm sure butter crunch would be perfect  ;)
