I love a really cold salad and this takes it to the extreme. My father would always serve all the greens ice cold and I really feel this recipe keeps that tradition alive!

Put the head of lettuce on a flat surface and cut in half at the equator. Transfer the lettuce to a small tray and put it in the freezer.
