Storage Tips

  • Place the lettuce in a bath of cold water and swish it around and then spin dry before storing.
  • Store the lettuce in a plastic bag in the fridge. Storing the lettuce with a paper towel will often keep the lettuce from becoming soggy.

Culinary Tips

  • Generally lettuce is eaten raw, consider removing any browned, slimy, or wilted leaves. For all lettuce types, try to thoroughly wash and dry the leaves to remove any dirt or lingering insects.
  • In addition to their most common use in salads, you can also braise, steam, sauté & even grill certain lettuce varieties. Try halving a head of radicchio or romaine lengthwise, and brush on some extra virgin olive oil, and grill until they soften and just begin to brown
