Six heads of iceberg lettuce... No idea how that happened any suggestions other than salad?

Use the lettuce leaves as wraps. Fill with julienned peppers, carrots and shredded cheese. Roll shut and serve with a dipping sauce
Use leaves for tacos instead of taco shells. Or, chinese lettuce wraps - mu shu pork with hoisin sauce.

I like to stir fry it with some bacon. I have a recipe listed on this site. Cooked lettuce is actually pretty good.

Kukla has this recipe on the site that is delicious! I grew up with a variation of this and love it on sandwiches or anything that needs a little something - like plain chicken. http://food52.com/recipes... I've also heard of lettuce soup but don't have a recipe.

This is a great way to use up extra lettuce. I haven't tried it with iceberg but I think it would work!

Juice it, or put in a food processor with a bit of water and lemon juice...and pulverize and strain. Freeze that and make a sorbet/Granite. Serve in a martini glass with some balsamic vinegar
Don't be in too much of a hurry. Iceberg keeps for quite a while.

Lettuce soup - the internet is awash in recipes for it!
Def look for a recipe for lettuce wraps/lettuce rolls- eggrolls. If you like pork,shrimp, veggie, etc. you will find one that fits perfectly to suit your taste. I sometime combine shrimp with ground pork. It's a great combo. This is much healthier when used with a lettuce roll.
