What Kind of Lettuce Is This?

It's growing up in a mixed mesculin bed. It has tall hearty stalks that start out white and turn light purple. The veins are purple as well and leaf is light green. The taste is bitter and leaf is much thicker than regular lettuce. It's even thicker than chard or beet greens. Help me.

It may be kale. It is sometimes sold in lettuce mixes, but is more like a green, like collards. It is very tasty stir fried or steamed.
