I follow a low residue diet and iceberg lettuce is on it. I know I can also tolerate romaine lettuce.
The type of salads that would probably give you trouble are the baby lettuces, fresh spinach, anything with the nuts, seeds, etc. In other words, the salads that upscale restaurants serve.
Also, I've heard that bagged salad (restaurants use this type) have additives to keep them fresh longer. So this additive might upset your GI tract too.
If you want salads, I would buy your own lettuce (iceberg, romaine possibly), wash it yourself. Skip bagged salads and salad mixes.
