Iceberg Lettuce Recipes?

Perhaps, but does anyone out there use iceberg lettuce in applications other than in its raw form in one type of salad or another?
Over the weekend, since I had extra ice cream base leftover, I was tempted to juice it and make "iceberg lettuce ice cream" ... but even I have my limits to Frankenfoods.
What do people do with this vegetable other than salads? Do people stir-fry iceberg lettuce? Braise it? Dip it in batter and deep-fry?
I once ordered Noodle Soup with Vegetables at a Chinese restaurant, where the noodles were straight-up spaghetti, the broth was not much more than salt and water, and the sole vegetable was iceberg lettuce.
I was appalled. I think it prompted me to write my first-ever online review of a restaurant, way back in the early '00s.
But I do admit to enjoying iceberg in tacos, salads, spring rolls, etc. Nothing else has that sweet, juicy, nearly-flavorless crunch! :-)
