Chinese do not usually eat raw vegetables. So being from Chinese ancestry, I have been eating stir-fried lettuce when growing up in Malaysia.
Now living in a land of abundance, I realised that this happens to be the easiest and fastest way to get rid of a whole lot of lettuce. All you need to do is to cook the lettuce leaves in a little bit of vegetable oil, add some garlic and a dash of oyster sauce. This method allows you to reduce a whole head of lettuce into just a bowl of green veggie goodness. You may eat this with rice, noodles, or heck I put it in between my bread.
I might be the inventor of the stir-fried lettuce sandwich?!
