If you love the crisp texture of iceberg lettuce but think that the taste is too bland, don't just keep adding salad dressing. Dress up the taste of iceberg lettuce by adding a few mixed baby salad greens, arugula, spinach and watercress.

Trim the edge of the glass with sprigs of mint. Somehow the day will just seem cooler.
