Culinarily, this is...

Lettuce is just leaves; it’s not even a fruit botanically. It’s nothing like a fruit. It is eaten raw usually, but it’s not sweet. It’s not eaten by itself except by bunnies. It’s eaten with savory flavors. It’s not a dessert at all. It’s not even fleshy. Plus it’s green. It’s really vegetabley.
