Expert Tips

Romaine can come in several different packages to get to 8 cups. • One head of romaine weighs about 18 oz = 12 to 13 cups • One 18-oz bag of hearts of romaine = about 12 to 13 cups • One 10-oz bag hearts of romaine = about 7 1/2 cups

The traditional way to serve a cobb salad is with the ingredients arranged in rows on lettuce. We've given it a new twist by serving it in layers.
