Albanians are muslim and they dont belong the slavs so im pretty sure most people in Europe wouldnt clasify them as white. He denies it indicatively to show his affiliation with the other side (aka the blacks i guess). I guess he likes throwing that "white" people. Anyways...

White is such a subjective term. I used the word in a tongue in cheek manner. I was more making fun of White Americans (who I consider myself different from) who love putting lettuce in sandwiches and burritos.

Besides your Bulgarian. There are theories that Bulgars were a turkic tribe and god knows how much tatar influence Bulgarians have. Many people consider Bulgarians to be asiatic to some degree.

all those and some various bok choi-types.

IMO collards are pretty heavy and have a strong taste, so they're best steamed or in things like stir fries & mean greens. dandelions are pretty bitter, so i've never eaten too much of them. maybe best as a minority mix in an assorted-greens salad.

i need to get my act together and eat more greens and other colors of vegetables. supposedly it's important to eat the whole color range for vitamins and anti-cancer purposes. green - red - orange - purple - blue.... those are the main ones, i think.

The wedge salad.

This might just save iceberg lettuce.



beware lettuce imposters:



This is Ice-T's album 'the Iceberg', not iceberg lettuce.



While insalata sounds and looks like salad, it has no lettuce, only basil, and that is a herb. I cannot count how many times well meaning lettuce aficionados have been duped by this.

Of course, Bibb lettuce is what made the earlier poster's Bibb salad so memorable.

Quote:
butterhead lettuce
One of two varieties of head lettuce (the other being CRISPHEAD). Butterhead lettuces have small, round, loosely formed heads with soft, buttery-textured leaves ranging from pale green on the outer leaves to pale yellow-green on the inner leaves. The flavor is sweet and succulent. Because the leaves are quite tender, they require gentle washing and handling. Boston and Bibb (also called limestone) lettuce are the two most well known of the butterhead family. The smaller Bibb is highly prized by gourmets. Both Boston and Bibb lettuce are sometimes referred to simply as "butterhead" or "butter" lettuce.

There is a big difference between tatar and turks. And between turk tribes and today's turkey. There is also several types of bulgars tribes. In the 6th century they split and moved to different places. 4 of them were conquered or killed. The final fifth settle down in my today's Bulgaria. Eventually the mixed with the 7 slavs tribues and the local tribe traki. Bulgarias are 80% slavs. Our country is getting full of gypsies if you consider them asiatic i guess you are right.
