Tips to Use
Do you often throw out lettuce because it’s turned brown before you could eat it? As soon as you buy it take out the white core. These usually turn brown first then turn the rest of the lettuce brown too. Also, you can add freshness to lettuce by soaking it in ice cold water for about 15 minutes and then spinning it dry in a salad spinner.
