I don't think there will be any noticable difference with going with either one :)

personal preference, that is all..romain may have a little more nutritional value, probably not though, beasically lettuce is just a bunch of water no matter how you look at it

Romaine and other dark lettuces are much better for you. Iceberg lettuce is pretty much water with a decent amount of folic acid. Romaine is packed full of nutrients and antioxidants as well as being a source of fibre, fat and even a little protein. Lettuce is not just a bunch of water. It is actually very good for you. It just depends on the type.

I usually buy hearts of Romaine. For me it's personal taste.

darker = more chlyorophillins and carotenoids

Next question...

Is a salad a good food choice for bulking? I know its a healthy food, but should I be eating more calorie dense foods instead?

its not a problem, as long as it doesn' make you too full to include enough calories.

romaine lettuce is far superior in it's nutritional content and taste.
