Trader Joe's Romaine Salad

For the first time ever, my Trader Joe's was out of both versions of the butter lettuce I routinely buy as half of a salad mix. (The other half is the Lemony Greens Blend, Spicy Spinach Blend, Power to the Greens, or Herb Salad Mix.) So I picked this instead.

I've never liked Romaine lettuce as much as butter lettuce. If I'm going to have it, I'd rather it be part of a blend, as in the Baby Lettuce Mix. It's primarily that thick stalk running down the middle of each leaf that I dislike. And this bag was no different. It will do in a pinch, as in this week's big salad bowl, but it will never be my first choice.

Will I buy it again? 

Only if like circumstances repeat themselves.


  1. I just posted on another review that I'm not allowed to buy bagged salad. My husband says too many recalls. He only wants head lettuce.

  2. Romaine is never my first choice either, i would rather get the iceburg and shred myself for a crisp crunchy lettuce
    Bagged or not all produce (and meats, poultry, dairy, etc) is susceptible to recalls. It's just harder to effectively recall heads of lettuce since they don't have a barcode for tracking or identifying
